Inverse Square Law

The inverse-square law, in physics, is any physical law stating that a specified physical quantity or intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source of that physical quantity.












What is “Resonant Capacitive Coupling” and what does it have to do with plasma tube instruments. Actually, it has nothing to do with the plasma tube range (30 feet or more) that is scientifically provable. We will now discuss in greater detail this subject. What “Resonant Capacitive Coupling” mostly deals with is short distance wireless battery charging which is used with cell phone chargers and electric car
batteries. We quote from the dictionary its definition and give two video links for a greater understanding of this law. We recommend you take the time to watch these videos:

“Resonant Capacitive Coupling also referred to as electric coupling, makes use of electric fields for the transmission of power between two electrodes (an anode and cathode) forming a capacitance for the transfer of power.”

If you watched the two YouTube videos then you understand that they deal with the subject of wireless power transfer including how scientists are working on high power wireless chargers for electric vehicles. But this method of power transfer can only be done within a short distance because the technology has not reached the capability of being able to do this efficiently over a several foot distance,
let alone 30 feet. If a plasma tube could be used to transfer electrical frequencies or electrical power by “Resonant Capacitive Coupling” scientists would have used plasma tubes a long time ago to charge batteries if they really worked on “Resonant Capacitive Coupling.”

Scientists already know how plasma tubes work and how the power transfer is governed by the “Inverse Square Law.” Everyone that uses any plasma tube instrument should understand this law and how it works. We quote from the dictionary its definition and give two video links for a greater understanding of this law. We also recommend you watch these videos:

“The inverse-square law is a principle that in free space, all electromagnetic waves (radio, light, X-rays, sound, gravity, etc.) obey this law which states that the power density of an electromagnetic wave is proportional to the inverse of the square of the distance from a point source.”

If you watch these videos then you now understand that all electromagnetic waves such as radio, light, X-rays, sound, gravity, etc. are governed by the “Inverse Square Law.” Unlike other companies, we do not incorrectly claim that our plasma tube works on "Resonant Capacitive Coupling." “Resonant Capacitive Coupling” is nothing but a “Red Herring” which misleads people into an incorrect understanding of how plasma tubes can have a 30 to 40-foot range. The “Inverse Square Law” clearly shows how and why they can have a large range based on the power output from the plasma tube. The original 1930s/1950s instruments clearly had this distance capability.


"Any point source which spreads its influence equally in all directions without a limit to its range will obey the inverse square law. This comes from strictly geometrical considerations. The intensity of the influence at any given radius is the source strength divided by the area of the sphere. Being strictly geometric in its origin, the inverse square law applies to diverse phenomena. Point sources of gravitational force, electric field, light, sound or radiation obey the inverse square law."
