would .9999 silver wire produce a better current then copper wire, including heat expansion in the equation for a magnetic generator? also what magnet would be best n45 power magnets or average magnets
Silver conducts better than copper. Not more cost effectively, though.
Magnets with higher flux density will give better performance.
During WW2 one method of enrichment used by the Manhattan Project was essentially a giant mass spectrograph called a Calutron, where Uranium ions were sent through a magnetic field, the heavier ones following a less curved trajectory.
The Manhattan Project requisitioned from the treasury 13 tons of silver [for the windings] and would not tell Treasury what they were doing with it, where it was, or when they would get it back. Seems the bean counters got upset about this until they were told by the very highest authority to just shut up and go away….
