I guess the bottom line is that I’m not very concerned with opinions -  
and prefer to remain focused on what I might (or might not) be able to  
get done in the amount of time available to me.

I generally take germane input seriously. Since last posting I picked up  
a spectroscope and a prism for building a better one to use with my camera.

Last night I wrote my first software to discover how difficult it might  
be to detect spectral lines and to see if I could determine wavelength  
and relative magnitude from a .jpg spectrograph image. You can see the  
result at http://www.iedu.com/tmp/Analysis.png  - and I think the answer  
to all questions is “yes”.

More later...

You can buy a single-element Atomic Absorption lamp on Amazon to  
minimize the resolution requirements of your monochromator:

Mikek...

Here’s a next piece of my puzzle. The challenge was to calculate the  
average separation distance between H₂ molecules in the reaction chamber  
for pressures between 1 and 25 times atmospheric:

Volume of empty reaction chamber is 26.5954 cc
100 g (11.2259 cc) Nickel added
Gas volume = 15.3695 cc, T = 25 ˚C

The attraction between nickel and hydrogen may be more relevant.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickel_hydride  
"Hydrogen atoms bond strongly with a nickel surface, with hydrogen  
molecules disassociating in order to do so."

This has been studied intensively and practiced industrially for over  
a century, which is the reason for scepticism that something so simple  
has been overlooked.

Golden! I already had a browser window open to that Boltzmann constant

page answers a question I’ve been worrying over for quite a while. Thank  
you! :-)


I’ve known from the beginning that I might be chasing a wild goose up a  
blind alley – but, since I’m not on anyone’s payroll but my own, I’m  
free to fail where others aren’t.

I’ve occasionally found stuff that had been intensely overlooked, and  
now try to live between belief and unbelief – and that makes projects  
like this one interesting because I’ll get an “Aha!” moment whichever  
way things go.
