How Random is Air Shuffling ? Ever wonder if there is any science in floating balls in air currents ? In duststorms, electrostatic charges build up. Same thing happens with volcanic ash when it is forced up, commonly causing corona discharge (lighting). Turns out, particles rubbing against each other produce a static charge. Ever wonder why certain numbers in Powerball come up more often, or why sequences turn up more often than not ? The reason, may be as simple as science, and a phenomenon known as Tribo- effect.
Powerball Historical Numbers:
Possible Algorithm Components:
Coulombs Law: Which describes the forces between charged particles.
F= ke(q1q2/r2) where ke=1/4pie0

Static Charged Particles: Reference articles on dust charges below.
Temperature and Humidity: Static charges develop faster in drier environments.
Chaos Theory: Yes, there is such a thing.
Download our Filemaker database solution with all Powerball numbers through 20171111: http://www.laserstatics.com/download/filemaker/powerball-analysis-20171111-winner-public-release.fmp12
Note: The database is for illustrative purposes only, and allows you to search, look for patterns, and upload Powerball numbers. This is a free version. Contact Infinity for a full version.
Solution requires Filemaker software (Mac/Windows) to read, or FileMaker Go for iPhone and iPad.
Articles on Static Charges in Dust Storms:
1. You need to play all 69 numbers for the first number (1-69). All of the following numbers will be a result of that first number.
2. Pair the balls with the most picks (i.e. they have the most static charge) with high probability into a algorithm.
3. Develop a algorithm which incorporates Pi and Coulombs Law.
4. Go for the match 5 which has better odds, instead of the Powerball Jackpot.
How To Play Powerball:
2. Drawings are every Wednesday and Saturday.
3. They draw five white balls out of a drum with 69 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 26 red. These are air shuffled in Florida, which has high humidity, but probably humidity controlled inside.
4. Odds are not in your favor !
Filemaker allows you to incorporate complex algorithms and data analysis by building custom database solutions. It’s easy to use, and very fast.
Summary: This is a fun project which incorporates science, static charge, and methodology. It’s a good exercise in developing formulas and discipline in organization. Make a plan and follow-through.
Good luck !
