    Well well well, stepping into my territory, eh?! I shall make a video about this!!

    As a ham radio operator, I was taught that RF (radio frequency) travels along the outer skin of the wire. The higher the frequency, the more pronounced the effect. Rf in non-visible (low frequency) light so that works for me. So the surface aria of the wire making up the antenna feedline, or wire antenna makes a difference. Not only the surface aria of the wire, but surface coating of the wire. Electroplate a copper wire with gold, and conductivity and efficiency dramatically improve.

    Hi @Veritasium, I enjoyed the video with the concept of energy flux and the use of electron as "static" media guiding the electromagnetic waves. But how do you explain arcing with the energy flux as arcing is a flux of electron ionizing the ambient air? Or how do you explain electronic components such as transistors triggered by electron flux?

    Great video! Not only informationwise but also neat production. Thanks a lot!

    Awesome video!! Poynting vectors where referenced often by Tom Bearden. John Bedini devices collected this energy from around the wires using sharp gradient impulses of energy, while shutting off the potential source before current could flow and kill the source di-pole. He was able to induce energy into the wire and collect the Poynting vector energy without depleting the source supply. This is an great video that might help pave the way to understand electricity better. And appreciate that there is more going on around the wires than through the wires. And this energy can be engineered to our benefit.

    I’m so glad this video exists. I use to completely not even understand how electricity worked, and now I still don’t.

    It is definitely an eye opener to me. Being an EE all my life i will look into this more.

    Can you explain about lightning strike using Energy transfer like your explanation in this video? 🙏

    Asking questions about stuff like this used get me in trouble lol. I was so confused by the water in a pipe analogy once I thought about it :P

    There's something I still can't explain. Energy is carried through the electromagnetic field wich is quite logical afterwards but here's my problem : how do you explain that an other device placed in that field doesn't use that energy too. Said differently, if I place a light bulb (not connected to anything) just next to an other one while it's working, why wouldn'it turn on too ?

    The fundamental law of physics: electricity disappear if you stop paying bills.

    Thank you! I asked about this at tech college and got told to leave the class if I was going to ask such stupid questions ;-)

    so how do fuses in conductors work, if the energy is flowing outside of the conductor?

  • @OmnicidalOneiriac

    Okay, I'll trust you, you are far more educated than I on the subject, but I want more answers? Like how does a diode actually work, if the energy is flowing both ways? Is the energy flow dependant on electron flow, even though most of the "information" is in the energy? I have so many questions.

    So a better example than a chain in a tube is someone whipping battle ropes alternatively at the gym to cause energy upon the anchor.

    What happens to flux when exit? Does it reduces?

    After watching this video I can confidently say I understand less about how electricity works than I did before.

    This is why Nikolai Tesla figured out that you can wireless transmit energy/power.
