Simple Science - Funny Thoughts
« on: March 06, 2011, 11:13:24 PM »
Jai Sai Master, Babu garu..
Jai Sai Master, Sai Bandhus..

I was reading a book on General Science written for kids and until I was 39 years :-) I did not even think of a particular aspect which I want to share here. I will write as it is....


H2O, which we call water, is Two parts Hydrogen and One part Oxygen. If we run an electric current through water, we can break it down into two gases, Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Now, compare those parts separately with that of the WHOLE.
Hydrogen is a highly explosive gas. Oxygen is needed for fires to exist. But when Hydrogen and Oxygen come together with a particular mixture, we get water to put out fires.

So, as a WHOLE, Water has properties that are different from those of its parts.

I then went on to think (which I did not do since my school days), :-) many of the things on Earth have similar display of properties.

One more food for thought!!! When the water is divided, Molecules of water does not display "wetness" or "hardness" or "gaseous state" just like any other matter. Only when trillions and trillions and trillions of molecules form together to become a WHOLE that the "wetness" is displayed.


TIME TO READ EDI NIJAM AGAIN!! :-)

Best regards to all,
JAI SAI MASTER!
Jai Sai Master!
Jai Swamy Sai!

Jai Sai Master.

Good one. Another interesting characteristic is
 
Water is stable at neutral state. But when each O or H ions gets disturbed, it becomes either acidic(soft) or alkaline(hard)!!
