Nope. Try a formula with the voltage set at zero. Hell, try a
simulation. They do not function, and the current is "theoretically"
infinite at such low load resistances.
As long as there is current, there must be voltage. It's just that
the data readings get fuzzy when zeros are involved, just like the
math does. Right down near zero, however, very interesting things
occur. THAT is why I think that silver would yield benefits. You are
always trying to work near zeros. You want zero Ohm connections,
guaranteed, SILVER is you man. It is more malleable than copper as it
is softer High current line couplings for Navy ships have very thick
silver platings for corrosion reasons, as well as good ol' fashioned
"get the best connection you can" reasons. The fingers mush and
abrade against each other making very low ohmic measure, very intimate
contact. This is for high current stuff. Low current contactors
usually use platinum platings as it virtually NEVER oxidizes.
Moshing to pieces of silver together passes more current and
exhibits less heat than moshing two copper pieces together. The
surface atoms simply meld, and some even do so covalently.
Even solder will do that. Take a raw, unprotected stack of the old
style non masked circuit boards, fresh from the board house, and the
traces covalently bond together under pressure, allow one to pick up
several boards at once. Silver and copper do as well, but silver much
Hell, I'm behind you now. Blow 'em up. Blow 'em up... REAL GOOOOD!
But think silver. Be a champion AMP master!
