In paragraph 6.2 Energy Balance, what part of the fuel load was used to provide the 1.5 MWhr of net energy produced. Since the reactor was still operating there was no doubt fuel left to produce more energy.
It is not possible, in my opinion, to say exactly how much fuel had been used at the end of the test because the ash sample seems to be not representative of the average isotopic shifts in the whole ash. However it seems that the isotopic shifts of Lithium and Nickel are bound to end much before the 6 months charge time advertised by Rossi.
If we assume that the fuel contains 0.0117 [g] of Li, my reactions say that the complete isotopic shift can contribute wit 0.7 [MWh], therefore roughly half of the measured released energy.
If we assume that the fuel contains 0.55 [g] of Ni, my reactions say that a complete upward isotopic shift towards Ni62 can generate 13.5 [MWh]. This is 9 times the measured released energy.
So I think that definitely the two isotopic shifts are not linked.
Moreover the ash sample was made of grains that had almost completed the isotopic shifts, which is the reason for the limit imposed by Rossi to the experimenters. In fact probably when the most reacting fuel grains finish the possible isotopic shifts other reactions start to happen, and these generate some gamma that need additional shielding.
The increase in the power of the last 4 days in fact suggests the beginning of such a transition, when the reactions start to change in the grains that reacted more quickly.
The quantity of Ni in the fuel say also that some fuel grains (not in the sample) had not reacted, otherwise the energy released would have been much more. The transition from the isotopic “enrichment” phase and the “power” phase is probably quite smooth, and about 40 days of continuous stimulation are the time when some gamma start to be measurable.
I hope I have addressed your question. I not, please feel free to ask and comment again.
Thank you for an interesting theory. It feels lot better than WLT. Some parts of it are hard to swallow but it is concise and gives very precise predictions so it should be rather easy for physicists to check its validness.
It occurred to me that is it possible that even Ball Lightning could be explained by a bigger number of Nucleonions created with the energy released by Lightning and assembling loosely together through some sort of attraction. Different kinds of Nucleonions (incl. Calcium) based on "dirt" even if mainly Hydronions? Please search for "ball lightning video" and check at least the article at phys.org and let us know your thoughts.
