    Hello,

    Electromagnetism is considered the most trustful part of actual physics. There are a lot of physicists contesting the special and general theory of relativity, a small number contesting quantum mechanics, but none is contesting the actual electromagnetism.
    It is time to revive all old und dusted experiments from electromagnetism and to provide new explanations for them.
    In attached link, Van de Graaff generator is analyzed and the inconsistencies and absurdities accepted by actual electromagnetism are highlighted.

    It is hilarious how a exact science like physics is not able to solve a simple low level problem: how is possible to add a small charge generated in the ,,friction” process or injected from a external potential to a sphere containing a greater charge after few second of VDG generator working.

    Hey Sorin,
    I haven't actually gone to your link, but Electromagnetics is a really interesting subject!
    The generator that I believe you are referring to is an Electric Generator, correct? The question that I have is if this specific generator that you are talking about is also an electric motor? Does it use an iron core covered in turns of copper wire? Is this also placed in between two permanent magnets?
    If so, then your 'generator' may also be an electric motor. Check this out and then rephrase your question, the bottom half doesnt make much sense.

    He's talking about that crowd-wowing device that makes your hair frizz.

    Van der Graaff device is not a ,,electric generator". You can use a electric motor to ensure the belt moving, but with the same result you can rotate the belt with a crank.
    So it is better to check you the working principle for some simple devices.
