Default Re: Agenothree (HNO3, nitric acid)

still haven't managed to get into the PDA tech. the telegraph was electricity based. wet cell batteries. which in All the Weyrs of Pern Aivas mentions that is what Fandarel's constructs are. common tech here is lead and Sulfuric acid, though zinc and copper as a cathode and anode are likely as well.
