# Thread: Electromagnetic Spectrum Frequency Changes

1. Electromagnetic Spectrum Frequency Changes:

Would it be at all possible to take a radio wave (1000Hz) and break it down into 16 waves of 60Hz??

2.

3. No.

4. Give an example of what you mean.

If you mean 1-1kHz input with 16 outputs @ 60 Hz each that can recombine to be 1 kHz by simply adding them up, no.

If you are asking about down-conversion to 60 Hz, yes. I don't see why you'd want 16 output paths, but yes.

If you mean something else entirely, maybe.

5. It does somewhat sound like the OP is looking to do down-conversion. Again, this is another one of those posts where the OP doesn't give enough information for anyone to sufficiently answer the question. Please elaborate. Usually an example will suffice, but I know that you don't want to sound like you are asking a homework question.

6. There is enough energy in a single 1000 Hz photon to make 16 60 Hz photons, so I suppose it would be theoretically possible. But I don't know of any device that does such a thing.

7. sorry replay took so long.

Okay, this may seem strange but I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert the frequency emitted by a radio roughly 1kHz into electricity 60Hz used for house hold things like TVs and such.

Does that make a little more since?

and if its not possible, what kid of technology would i need to do this effectively?

8. What you are trying to do is called wireless energy transfer.

The radio wave is converted to d-c electrical power by a rectenna.

To convert the d-c to a-c you would use an inverter.

9. OH nvm they already have it >.<
