Resolving the Anomalies of H2O
January 31 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PMFree
Within the academic discipline of physical chemistry 70 “anomalies” of H2O have been recognized. These anomalies are inconsistent with predictions of standard theory and have no known alternative explanations. Due to a theoretical breakthrough these anomalies are now finding resolution. If at any time in your career or education you encountered the unresolved anomalies of H2O and were left wondering how something that appears to be so simple could have so many unresolved and unexplained anomalies then this will be for you. Rest assured, this is not just a discussion of H2O’s anomalies. This presentation purports to present the solution, correcting a wrong turn in theory that was made some eighty years ago, setting the stage for a new understanding of a molecule that is central to all of the natural science.
