Weird H2O -Science Catches Water Doing Some Bizarre Things


Water_drop_3Recently exotic new states of water caused  Harvard researchers to question what we really know about one of the most common and abundant substances on the planet.

First there was the discovery that you can actually burn salt water (see related posts below) if you zap it with just the right radio frequency, fueling hopes that plain old seawater could someday be converted to abundant clean energy. Now researchers are finding that water forms a floating bridge when exposed to high voltages. Other researchers also recently discovered that you can make water stay frozen at very warm temperatures if you coat it with a special diamond mixture. These are all surprising twists stemming from H2O—the abundant substance we all thought we knew so well.

Harvard physicists found that specially treated diamond coatings can keep hot water in a frozen state. (http://www.news.harvard.edu/gazette/2007/09.20/09-hotice.html ) The researchers say the finding may be useful in certain medical implants, although others argue that diamonds might cause blood clots. In either case, the big news here is that diamonds can make water solid. Doctoral student Alexander Wissner-Gross and Efthimios Kaxiras, physics professor and Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics, found that even a very thing layer of diamond coated with sodium atoms will keep warm water in a solid state up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit.

As if that wasn’t weird enough, researchers from the University of Technology in Austria recently discovered that when exposed to a high-voltage electric field, water in two beakers will climbs out and cross empty space to join, forming a water bridge that appears to defy gravity. (http://physorg.com/news110191847.html)

The researchers noticed a pattern with the inner structures: every experiment started with a single inner structure, which then decayed into additional structures after a few minutes of operation. The group believes this decay is caused by either dust contamination or the increasing temperature of the water bridge under the electric field. As the water temperature increased from 20 degrees Celsius to more than 60 degrees Celsius—which took about 45 minutes—the bridge will finally, inexplicably collapse.

The scientists explain that the unusual effect of the floating water bridge, as well as the microstructures they observed during the interaction of water with electric fields, could be another piece to the puzzle of the structure of water. The group said that they are currently investigating how highly ordered microstructures may explain the density change in the water bridge.

It may be one of the most important and abundant chemical compounds on Earth, but the properties of plain old water is still a puzzle to scientists. Researchers are still trying to uncover the nature of water beyond the H2O scale, governed by hydrogen bonds, which is thought to be responsible for water’s many unique possibilities.

Oxygen is a male with two hydrogen wives, merging marriage that makes life.

hi,The Motif of your blog is very good to me, I hope more exchanges with you this Motif.

retarded, you are not burning water just the hydrogen that you are separating from it is burning you tard fucks

nice. real mature here.

I have a cute ferett and when I look it I often wonder. But then wait Feretts also could form a bridge if coated with diamonds, but again, it will only be stable up till about 108 degrees Fahrenheit. All im trying to say is yes!

i bet many things would defy gravity if given an electric charge...even my arse...

About the density change, maybe there is some electrolysis happening, either burning the hydrogen or separating it and releasing it. Most likely there are impurities in the water causing an electromagnetic field to hold the water molecules together, along with surface tension. Annoymus was kind enough to simplify it for us. As far as burning sea water with radio frequencies , how could you get more energy out than is put in? Can we use these frequencies for normal communications and still burn sea water? Can we sustain a burnt sea water market? Hmm' burnt sea water. Makes me crave blackened seafood, Cajun style.

It is the ions in the salt-water which are being burned. Otherwise you'd be able to burn regular water if it was just hydrogen (not to mention oxygen as an accelerant). The man who discovered this was purposefully trying to excite metal atoms in the salt-water to see if the contraption he built out of his wifes pie-tins would work to similarly excite gold atoms that had bonded to her cancer cells. Sadly, she passed before he could attempt to save her.

As for water forming a bridge under a electro-magnetic current, it is now known that hydrogen molecules can be polarized in at least two specific ways. One way allows for massive clouds of hydrogen in space to use their spins to align their dipoles so they form immensely long chains, and thus intersteller gas clouds. That being said, who knew the bond was that strong?

As for why the bridge collapses at a specific temp, that is the temp at which hydrogen molecules begin to break apart. For sure the polar-bonds would snap as the molecule began to vibrate. In fact it will eventually vibrate fast enough that it would burn a hole through your hand, and this happens everywhere in outer space as 16% of all H30 molecules decay into super hot H20 - SPACE WATER lol
