Build a temprature sensor that works on colour, IR or equivalent (ongoing)
This project is here as it is needed for the next project so far i havent looked into how i would build it but im sure its possible otherwise maybe a simple colour chart of tempratures.
Producing Sodium using electrolosis on moltern salt, (ongoing)
Past experiments have proven i can melt table salt the only problem being that sodium vaporises at about 877 deg C and salt melts are 810 deg C so my attempts at producing sodium failed miserably as it vaporised or just wasnt created (im not sure what currents are needed). I know i was over the temprature by along way tho as the steel pot i was using melted (steel melts around 1510 deg C!).
I havent found much infomation on thermite other than it being really simple to produce (aluminium filings and rust heated and melted together), the only problem i can see with thermite is lighting it (requires really high tempratures) possible sources of ignition are: ark welder, gas blow torce, magnesium strip.
Looking at many designs for jet engines the lockwood pulsejet looks by far the easiest design to build as it doesnt have any valves and looks relatively simple to build unlike other designs.Some people are confusing this with the design of the
V1, the V1 had valves
the lockwood is valveless and invented in the 60's.
