The field of electronic propulsion is critical to human spaceflight and our ability to conduct further space explorations which enhance our scientific knowledge of the future. When dealing with an issue in the scientific community that has the potential to rescue and save the human species from problems such as planet overpopulation and extinction level events we must be willing to research any new hypothesis which has the possibility of teaching us something which could help us learn about achieving propulsion through transfer of energy. In the field of electronic propulsion, we are faced with two major obstacles, manufacturing robust hardware for deep space missions and increasing the ratio of thrust generated from electricity vs relying on chemical fuel for thrust. - Robertson, G. A., & Webb, D. W. (2011)
The goal of this proposal is to re-introduce a scientific approach to the way we handle space propulsion sciences, specifically increasing thrust density in electronic propulsion. The function of this proposal is to introduce an experiment that combines physics, chemistry, engineering, sound, electricity, and magnetism. Experiments in sound created by scientist Hans Jenny -Jenny, H. (2001), as well as current curriculum taught in Physics -Knight, R. D., Jones, B., Field, S., & Knight, R. D. (2014), Chemistry, EET and Math classrooms at North Seattle College will be Investigated. This experiment is unique in using sound to create a rotating vortex in a noble gas used for space propulsion. Current Textbooks and faculty support will be utilized during planning and execution of this experiment.
II. Research Question:
“Can Sound Be Used to Create Vortex Patterns
in Plasma Gas Used in Space Flight Applications?”
In nature we see many vortexes, contained within solids liquids and gas. In the observation of these vortex we notice many things in common. In many common vortex formations in nature we observe harmonic motion in the three dimensions. We observe sinusoidal motion, with an axis which is in a spherical formation that carries motion in three dimensions which we can measured and investigated. Within the three-dimensional rotational forms created by substances which carry the qualities of a vortex, we find an increase in Kinetic Energy within their structures which we can quantify through measuring the mass and velocity of particles within a vortex in three dimensions.
The purpose of this investigation is to determine how sound waves affect the shape and formation of a gas cloud which will be used as an electronic propellant for use in a spaceflight vehicle. Experiments done with lycopodium; a gas like particle used in physics have been done which produce a spherical vortex formation when under specific ranges of tones and frequency. In this experiment, we will attempt to create these formations, adding to the body of knowledge on the effects of soundwaves on matter through modification of Hans Jenny’s experimentations with sound by using noble gases which are commonly used in electronic propulsion devices.
