Water the Magic Liquid: Retaining Electrical Energy

To help solve the mystery of homeopathy, the authors perform experiments demonstrating the ability of pure water to hold an electric charge.

Overview: This is the 6th paper to resolve the mystery of Homeopathy scientifically. In our previous works we have explained that each Homeopathic medicine is different from each other and every potency of a medicine is also different, in respect to the electrical energy content of water5. In those papers it is shown that whenever any substance is introduced into water, it produces a strain, due to which dipoles of water molecules are forced to rearrange themselves thus this water becomes different from any other water in respect of its electrical energy content4.

Abstract: Whenever two electrodes are placed in a beaker containing pure /distilled water it generates emf. Here we have applied some external emf to the electrodes in water and have got some remarkable changes in its generation of emf, after removal of the external source of emf. From our experiments it is obvious that there is a change in water from passing an external emf, as there is hardly any possibility of changes in electrode pairs on passing of external emf . By now it is crystal clear that electrical energy is solely responsible for causing changes in water, which is again the main criteria to differentiate various Homeopathic Medicines. In other words, water can hold electrical energy.

Experiment:1

An experiment is performed with the following six (6) pairs of electrodes with varying combinations. The 1st pair of electrodes Cu & Zn was put in a beaker containing pure/ distilled water and its emf was recorded as “Initial” emf (Fig. 1).

After recording of initial emf , external emf of about 9 volts was allowed to pass through it, such that the positive terminal of the external source(i.e 9 volt battery) is attached to the positive electrode of the 1st pair (i.e: Cu) & negative terminal to the negative electrode of the 1st pair (i.e: Zn) as shown in Fig-2

The external emf was allowed to pass for 60 seconds and thereafter disconnected. The Final reading (Fig-3) is recorded after 15 seconds.

A similar process is done for the rest of the five pairs and readings are recorded in the table below:

 

Sl No.Pairs of ElectrodeType of electrode Initial ( i.e:Before passing External emf)(in mV)Final (i.e: After passing External emf of 9 volts for 60 seconds through similar Poles)(in mV)
Positive (+)Negative     (-)
1CuZnMetal-Metal (Different)9141250
2Gr.ZnNon metal-Metal12032030
3GrCuNon metal-Metal1501290
4CuCuMetal-Metal (Same)10482
5ZnZnMetal-Metal (Same)30238
6GrGrNon metal-Non metal111580

 

Here, Cu = Copper (Metal), Zn = Zinc (Metal), Gr = Graphite (Non-metal) In the above six cases it is found that even pure/distilled water can generate a remarkable emf with different combinations/types of electrodes. The generation of such emf is therefore either due to chemical reactions or to the presence of ions in water (H3O+ & OH). As there is hardly any chemical reaction with the stated pairs and water the generation of such emf may be attributed to the presence of H3O+ & OHions in water (as even the purest form of distilled water contains these ions).  If the generation of emf is due to the presence of only H3O+ & OHions in water —

a) there should not be such extreme variations for the above six pairs (the variation of emf from 10 mV (in case of Cu-Cu) to 1203 mV( in case of Gr-Zn) is quite remarkable).

b) an electrode playing different roles for different combination pairs i.e; at Sl.no. 1. Copper (Cu) is behaving as Positive electrode with Zinc (Zn) whereas at Sl.no.3 the same metal Copper (Cu) is behaving as a Negative electrode with Graphite (Gr.).

c) Moreover it is found that when these three electrodes are dipped in distilled water simultaneously, Cu behaves as a positive electrode with Zn while as a negative electrode with Graphite.1

In all the six cases above it is found that the final emf is always greater than the initial emf, which implies that the polarity of the electrode pairs remains the same even after passing of an external emf.

For the 1st pair, Cu & Zn in experiment 1, it increases from 914 mV to 1250 mV. Similar results for the other 5 pairs shows that either

       i. positive electrode becomes more positive & negative electrode becomes more negative

or    ii. changes, in charge, occurred at any one of the electrodes.

To confirm the changes that occurred at electrode ends on passing of external emf, the following experiment is done. Herein three electrodes (Cu, Zn & Gr.) are placed in a beaker containing distilled water and their readings are recorded separately for each pair as in the table below. External emf of about 9 volts is passed through Cu & Zn for about 1 minute. After stopping of external emf , final emf’s of all three pairs are recorded separately after 15 seconds and noted in the table below:

Sl No.Pairs of ElectrodeType of electrode Initial ( i.e:Before passing External emf)(in mV)Final (i.e: After passing External emf of 9 volts for 60 seconds through Cu & Zn with similar polarity)(in mV)
Positive (+)Negative ( –)
1CuZnMetal-Metal (Different)8401059
2Gr.ZnNon metal-Metal11471129
3GrCuNon metal-Metal227190

The initial and final readings for the pairs Gr – Zn & Gr – Cu clearly shows that changes occurred at both the electrodes on passing of external emf through Cu & Zn in water.

So it can be inferred here that the positive electrode becomes more positive & the negative electrode becomes more negative on passing of an external emf through similar poles.

Now the question arises about what makes the positive electrode become more positive & the negative electrode more negative on allowing emf to pass through similar poles. For the 1st pair Cu was positive and Zn was negative during generation of emf , but the question is how the immersed part of the said electrodes behaves within water. Actually the immersed portion of the Cu electrode behaves as more electron dense than the Zn electrode, i.e reverse of outside or emf producing end as shown in Fig. 5. If this result was due to ionization H3O+ & OHions would have gone to the more electron dense end (Cu end) and the less electron dense end (Zn end) respectively and would have been neutralized there. Thus the generated emf (Final) would have approached Zero, which is not the case.

Experiment:2

Another experiment is performed with the following six (6) pairs of electrodes with varying combinations. The 1st pair of electrodes Cu & Zn was placed in a beaker contaning distilled water and its emf was recorded as “Initial” emf . After recording of initial emf , an external emf of about 9 volts was allowed to pass through it such that the negative terminal of the external source (i.e 9 volt battery) is attached to the positive electrode of the 1st pair (i.e: Cu) & positive terminal to the negative electrode of the 1st pair (i.e: Zn). The external emf was allowed to pass for 60 seconds and thereafter disconnected. The Final reading is recorded after 15 seconds. A similar process is carried out for the rest of the five pairs and readings are recorded in the table below:

Sl No.Pairs of ElectrodeType of electrode Initial ( i.e:Before passing External emf)(in mV)Final (i.e: After passing External emf of 9 volts for 60 seconds through opposite Poles)(in mV)
Positive (+)Negative ()
1CuZnMetal-Metal (Different)850518
2Gr.ZnNon metal-Metal1110189
3GrCuNon metal-Metal259864
4CuCuMetal-Metal (Same)06585
5ZnZnMetal-Metal (Same)10278
6GrGrNon metal-Non metal091532

 

Here, Cu = Copper (Metal), Zn = Zinc (Metal), Gr = Graphite (Non-metal)

In all the six cases above it is found that the final emf is always less than the initial emf, which implies that the polarity of the electrode pairs get altered after passing of external emf.

For the 1st pair,Cu & Zn in experiment 2 it decreases from 850 mV to 518 mV. Similar results for other 5 pairs shows that

i) positive electrode becomes less positive & negative electrode becomes less negative

or ii) changes in charge occurred at any one of the electrodes.

It is already shown above that on passing of external emf through a pair of electrodes dipped in water, changes occur at both the electrodes in water. Now the question arises about what makes the positive electrode becomes less positive & the negative electrode less negative on allowing emf to pass through opposite poles. If this result was due to ionization H3O+ & OHions would have gone to the more electron dense end (Cu end) and less electron dense end (Zn end) respectively, and would have been neutralized there as discussed above. Thus the generated emf (Final) would have approached Zero, which is again not the case. And, it is always far from Zero, i.e; either Positive emf (For pairs 1&2) or Negative emf (for pairs 3,4,5 &6).

  • Dear Dr Ruhul Amin,
    Very good experimental work, ” Water the magic liquid – retaining electrical energy”.
    I like it, keep it up.

  • DEAR DR,
    YOU HAVE PROVED THAT REMEDY HOWEVER DILUTED CONTAIN THE POWER OF THAT REMEDY.THE POWER IN CREASES WITH EVERY SUCCESSION. SO THE REMEDY WHEN BECOMES MORE POWERFUL THEN THE POISON OF BACTERIA OR VIRUS IN THE BODY IS DESTROYED BY THAT REMEDY AND THE PATIENT IS CURED. IT HAS BEEN ALREADY PROVED THAT LIKE KILLS THE LIKE THAT IS LIKE CURES THE LIKE SO HOMEOPATHY IS TOTALLY SCIENTIFIC PATHY. TO FIND SIMILAR REMEDY MAY BE DIFFICULT BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE. HOMEOPATH MAY FAIL BUT HOMEOPATHY NEVER FAILS
    THANKS

  • Water is indeed a magic solution! I alwayz kept wondering how & why a little vial of water with pungent smell could cure for sure all our troubles until I get to know that you, two prodigal sons of Almighty,have already decoded the one great mystery of Nature. Pray 4 U, keep growing.
