If an electric field doesn't have a corresponding B field, or magnetic field, it means the electric field is made up with nearly equal amounts of photons that spin left as photons that spin right.And I have no idea where you are going with the magnetic field stuff. All that proves is that there is nothing electrical happening on the nucleus!
The spins cancel each other out, and no magnetic field will be detectable.
If all the photons are spinning the same way, then you get a magnetic field from their angular momenta.
The point being, just because there isn't a magnetic field, doesn't mean there isn't an electric field.
If there is a magnetic field in the coma, then the electric field there has coherent spin.It is well known where the magnetic field in the coma comes from. The IMF.
The fact that comets have a coma indicates electrical activity.
The coma is a plasmasphere.
Every body has one.
In the case of a comet, (it and) it's coma is travelling through the Sun's coma,
and that is what creates the electrical stresses.
I like this. Such a good scientific explanation.The field hangs up around the nucleus, and piles up. Hence an increase in the magnetic field.
The field hangs up what around the nucleus?
And piles up?
I presume you mean like the swamp (NASA's term for the "piled up" solar wind) at the heliopause.
So... piled up magnetic fields is what causes the comet's magnetic field?
I'm trying to follow.
Are you assuming no electrical activity because of the magnetic cavity?Within that piled up field is a diamagnetic cavity. That is, there is zero magnetic field within it (i.e. no electrical activity either).
Are you aware that not all electric fields have a magnetic component?
The solar wind doesn't penetrate any plasmasphere.The solar wind isn't penetrating it, and neither is the IMF. As measured. At Halley this was at ~4500 km. At 67P, a few hundred.
Mars and Venus do not have magnetic fields, but they have (the equivalent of) comas.
I'm with you on this.This is why it should be obvious that the silly idea of the solar wind creating water is laughable.
The comet is well out of the Sun's equatorial plane, where the Solar wind is.
But the Sun's electric field extends to there.
Don't ask us that.It isn't reaching the nucleus for long periods. It is travelling too quickly (i.e. the H+ is too energetic to combine with anything). There isn't enough of it by orders of magnitude. There is little, if any O- to combine with even if it were possible. Which it isn't. And the H2O at 67P has a very different D/H ratio to the solar wind. Need I go on?
You are saying all these things for your sake, to keep yourself convinced.
1. Something is reaching the nucleus, causing heat stress and outgassing. You yourself have said.
2. There are protons out there, even in the ambient IPM.
3. There is an abundant supply of oxygen atoms from the Silicon Dioxide in the nucleus itself.
4. Oxygen ions react not impossibly, but very readily, with any passing positive ion.
5. The H2O from the comet is a different source to the H2O in the solar wind, so they should have different ratios.
(Actually, I don't ever remember reading about H2O in the solar wind, but I guess there will be some in there. Mostly ionized.)
I think you missed hearing what you were being told.Solar wind = water = dumb idea.
Electrical interaction = elemental dissociation = jets containing water.
To use your style of summation.
Not denying there may be some water trapped in the rock.It is obvious where the ice and H2O (and other) vapour comes from; the place where it has been detected numerous times; the nucleus.
Just saying, the comet is not a dirty snowball.
Giving up is worse than failing.I think I'll give up on this place. I'm not sure what you believe in. However, that is what it seems to be; a belief system. It bears no resemblance to actual science.
Interplanetary magnetic field.
Why don't they just say "the Sun's electric field"?
It is the Sun's electric field that is between and beyond the planets.
That's what generates the interplanetary magnetic field.
Usually referred to as the Sun's magnetic field.
