    I'm running parallel plates; as many as I can fit into a 3" pvc pipe. I mount the tubes horizontally so that the bubbles do not "back up" on the plates and cause etching and heat. My spacing is...

    How to run brute force cells.

    If you choose to go parallel in a bath system, it's best to divide the voltage before the cell. That way you can use as much plate surface as possible. I found that using two 1 ohm 225w resistors...

    My understanding of diatomic (two atoms) vs monotomic (one atom) hydrogen is that diatomic is produced from the recombining of the split atoms when the voltage is above the 1.5 to 2vdc range. The...

    Resistor set-up

    The resistors (1 ohm & 5 ohm) are bolted together in parallel. This makes a single .83 ohm resistor for the circuit. (R1*R2/R1+R2 or 5/6=.83333)
    This is then wired in series with the cell; in...
