This is a flow chart, version 1e, of Stanley Meyer's Water Powered Car, in which I replaced every instance of 'venturi separator' with 'cyclonic separator/separation'. Oops!
My main theme is: Stanley Allen Meyer's Dune Buggy was powered by AMMONIA, and the technology for powering his dune buggy's internal combustion engine is very old dating back to at least 1807 when Sir Humphrey Davey made this statement:
"....electrolytic hydrogen will combine with nitrogen in the presence of water, while ordinary hydrogen will not."
"Electrolytic hydrogen" implies atomic, or chemically disassociated, mono-atomic hydrogen (as opposed to H2). The same applies to the nitrogen (N2), but not to water (H2O). So, we can readily produce ammonia "on the fly" if we can first break hydrogen and nitrogen down to their mono-atomic elements of singular atoms of each, and combine them in the presence of water -- and to the exclusion of any hydroxy radicals (HO) produced during the electrolysis of water (which also produced hydrogen "on the fly" -- as our car travels along). Any car fueled by this technology will only need water stored on board, plus air.
Aaron Murakami, Peter Lindemann, Russ Gries and the ghost of Stan Meyer (8^(|) must get the credit for turning me onto this topic.
I differ from Wikipedia's stance that Stan was a fraud. He was merely misunderstood -- per his own intention -- to keep his invention proprietarily secret.
The shortcut for this playlist is:
My eight minute synopsis is:
"Ammonia is sometimes called the "other hydrogen" due to its structure of three hydrogen molecules and one nitrogen molecule. The ability of ammonia gas to become a liquid at low pressures means that it is a good "carrier" of hydrogen. Liquid ammonia contains more hydrogen by volume than compressed hydrogen or liquid hydrogen. For example, ammonia is over 50% more energy dense per gallon than liquid hydrogen."
"Ammonia was used during World War II to power buses in Belgium, and in engine and solar energy applications prior to 1900. Liquid ammonia also fuelled the Reaction Motors XLR99 rocket engine, that powered the X-15 hypersonic research aircraft. Although not as powerful as other fuels, it left no soot in the reusable rocket engine and its density approximately matches the density of the oxidizer, liquid oxygen, which simplified the aircraft's design."
"...when we burn ammonia, we're actually burning hydrogen, since that's the element in ammonia that combusts and provides the energy."
"Ammonia is easy to crack." [takes little energy to burn]
