University of Washington Bioengineering Professor Makes Startling Statement on Sharon Kleyne Hour Radio Show Hosted by Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) February 27, 2014 Nearly all available information on the water content of the human body puts the number at 60 to 70 percent, a little more for children and a little less for the elderly. According to recent findings by Gerald Pollack, PhD, Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, the actual...

Key Property Of Material That Both Conducts And Insulates Pinpointed
2013-08-21 15:18:40

University Of Washington It is well known to scientists that the three common phases of water – ice, liquid and vapor – can exist stably together only at a particular temperature and pressure, called the triple point. Also well known is that the solid form of many materials can have numerous phases, but it is difficult to pinpoint the temperature and pressure for the points at which three solid phases can coexist stably. Scientists now have made the first-ever accurate...

Electron microscopy, conducted as part of the Shared Research Equipment (ShaRE) User Program at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has led to a new theory to explain intriguing properties in a material with potential applications in capacitors and actuators. A research team led by ORNL's Albina Borisevich examined thin films of bismuth samarium ferrite, known as BSFO, which exhibits unusual physical properties near its transition from one phase to another. BSFO holds...

Peritectic solidification involves the nucleation and growth of the primary phase, the peritectic reaction of the primary phase with the remnant liquid phase, and the microstructural evolution of the product peritectic phase. It provides an effective approach for the synthesis or processing of various kinds of advanced materials. Professor WEI Bingbo and his group from the Department of Applied Physics, Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), in Xi'an, China, have demonstrated novel dual...

Weird World Of Water Just Got Weirder
2011-11-09 13:59:02

Strange, stranger, strangest! To the weird nature of one of the simplest chemical compounds -- the stuff so familiar that even non-scientists know its chemical formula -- add another odd twist. Scientists are reporting that good old H2O, when chilled below the freezing point, can shift into a new type of liquid. The report appears in ACS' Journal of Physical Chemistry B. Pradeep Kumar and H. Eugene Stanley explain that water is one weird substance, exhibiting more than 80 unusual...

Earth's climate is strongly influenced by the presence of particles of different shapes and origins -- in the form of dust, ice and pollutants -- that find their way into the lowest portion of the atmosphere, the troposphere. There, water adsorbed on the surface of these particles can freeze at higher temperatures than pure water droplets, triggering rain and snow. Researchers at Spain's Centre d'Investigaci³ en Nanocincia i Nanotecnologia (CIN2) have studied the underlying mechanisms of...

The secret life of water just got weirder. For years water has been known to exist in 15 phases -- not just the merry threesome of solid, liquid and gas from grade school science. Now, University of Utah chemists have confirmed the coexistence of ice and liquid after water crystallizes at very low temperatures. They describe their work in the June 21 issue of the Journal of Chemical Physics, which is published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP). It takes more than a swizzle stick and...
