The circuit is connected to a regular car battery; and when turned on via the switch, current will flow across two resistors and a circuit component that is referred to by the research team as a "flux capacitor".
Both resistors have a known or expected eMF drop as understood by Ohm's law; the purpose of the experiment will be to measure the actual versus expected eMF drop across both resistors and attempt to explain any extra Deltas that persist by way of electro-magnetic induction or resistance created by the geometry of the flux-capacitor with relation to the current in the wire.
If the flux capacitor is configured with the correct polarity, the research team expects that it will add "free" eMF to the circuit from the latent static charge that is in the air, by polarizing the air in the vicinity of the flux-capacitor, similar to the charge created by a Van de Graff generator. The second resistor will burn brighter than the first.
Alternatively, if the flux capacitor is configured with the incorrect polarity, the research team expect that it will stop current from going through the circuit to the second resistor, and the second resistor will burn less brightly than the first.
Upon initial experimentation, additional controls will be introduced to the circuitry in order to account for false positive errors.
