Watch all of this, it's about an hour.

 

 

You need to watch this first so you can follow the Li-ion stuff I will post in the future.

Chem at school would help but shouldn't really be needed

If you didn't bother to watch and don't care, the take away is

 

A scientist discovers that which exists

An engineer creates that which never was

-Theodore von Kárman

 

A scientist converts money into ideas

An engineer converts ideas into money

-Dana Bookbinder

 

The car is a Studebaker Avanti

Sounds like one of those foreign cars...

I watched it, enjoyed it.
Might be time for another tafe course
Research for the sake of research will produce dividends, even if you don’t know how at the time
Don’t produce stuff from rare materials, ie lithium- and expect to take it to the world

Much better than people cooking on a renovation show

This film was produced in 1969 by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the United States Atomic Energy Commission to inform the public regarding the history, technology, and milestones of the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE). Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Molten Salt Reactor Experiment was designed to assess the viability of liquid fuel reactor technologies for use in commercial power generation. It operated from January 1965 through December 1969, logging more than 13,000 hours at full power during its four-year run.

more from Oak Ridge Lab (c.2013) with relevance to Lithium (Li-ion) batteries.

2 minutes

 

I'll find some short basic (they are out there, I've watched them in the past) videos related to Li-ion charge cycles, charge speed, mechanical shock/vibrations, dendrites and update this post

Lithium-ion (c.2018)

Will Chueh - Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy in collaboration with MIT & Purdue U

 

55 minutes

 

This is reasonably up to date and discusses Li-ion batteries in basic science terms, hang in there it is worth your time if you have an interest in battery tech. Knowledge of chemistry extremely helpful but not needed, just trust the science it is only there for proof.

Muppet Show (comedy) - Beaker

only 90 seconds, although funny, you may not learn much - but has value as entertainment

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I'd posted this in earlier thread but I can't find it (it may have been deleted)

Lithium (Li) as an element - Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff and Neil Barnes

Although this will cost you 10.5 minutes of your life - possibly time well spent

taken from the series Periodic Videos http://bit.ly/118elements

 

in nature Lithium (Li) cannot exist as a native element, it is only found as a compound/alloy.

Do your own research, or watch reruns of The Simpsons

…Might be time for another tafe course…
 

 

the following comments are off topic but, I'll comment anyway

 

TAFE costs money, is inflexible and makes futile attempts to 'herd cats'

 

You could start here (there may be similar sites) and learn what you need/want and only what you want.

Worth a look, it costs nothing.

https://www.khanacademy.org

I use Khan for background and a place to start for things I don't know, and for refresher 'jump starts' for stuff I learnt years ago that has become a little foggy or outdated.

Mmyeah.
Spending around 60 structured hours a semester plus about as much effort in study and research with assignments feedback and the rest gives depth and discipline that I’d struggle to maintain on YouTube. Going to tafe in a class of varied people that want to learn new stuff is also a pretty positive experience.
The last course I did, pre mowing was a diploma of management. I nearly walked after about 2 weeks but stuck with it and it was really worth it in many ways. Learned heaps about marketing, people, business and more. Made a few friends, had a whole lot of adult time which can be lacking at home sometimes.
I had a quick look a while ago and the local tafe didn’t have too much that appealed to me, mainly IT and some fluff business things. Thinking of doing a captains ticket. Just got to figure out how and where I’d get the sea hours to complete the course.

You really need a job on the water to get enough time, difficult at the moment with kids work and life.
