“Droplets get a charge out of jumping! Condensation on a metal plate leads to formation of droplets that carry an electric charge”
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) discovered that small water droplets that collect on a superhydrophobic surface and “jump” from it actually possess an electric charge. In this case the Superhydrophobic surface was metal however, these surfaces are simply explained as water-resistant surfaces. Some plant leaves and butterfly wings are good examples of “natural” superhydophic surfaces.
Described as an “unexpected finding,” the ability of the water droplets to carry an electric charge lead these scientists to believe that there may be new ways to harness power using electrically charged water.
“We found that when these droplets jump, through analysis of high-speed video, we saw that they repel one another midflight,” Miljkovic said. “Previous studies have shown no such effect. When we first saw that, we were intrigued.”
MIT is always ahead of the curve. It is no secret that they use electrically charged water (aka ionized water) in their conference center to replace harmful cleaning chemicals. The system that they use to modify the pH of their source water also produces high alkaline drinking water for their staff. If anybody understands the power of restructured, electrified water it’s MIT!
If the ionized water skeptics out there want to argue with MIT, knock your socks off! I’m happy drinking my electrically charged water in the comfort of my own home and watching MIT put the science behind the amazing health benefits that I’ve been seeing for a long time.
