are you curious to see what happens?
Yes! They decided to erase a CD with a tremendous amount of voltage and put it on video. Is this a good idea? Maybe yes maybe not but it is in the name of science right! If nothing else it is cool to see. Here are some notes from the experimenter:
Photonicinduction Erase CD and DVD with 240,000 volts.
Be aware of Ozone being generated, doing this in a well ventilated area is advised. X-rays can also be produced under certain curcumstances with voltages over 50KV. Never stuff silly volts into a vacuum tube ! Current was 10mA, 20mA and 60mA
NOTE: DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION OF A PROFESSIONAL
Ok so you may think this is a bit immature but understanding the physics involved can lead to the understanding of a lot more applications.
Ok are you ready to watch this awesomeness?
Let’s see what happens then they electrify this CD in the video on page 2
