Mitchell L Gold's curator insight, December 7, 2013 5:27 PM

the doctor of SIr John A Macdonald was the son of the Chief of the FIrst Nations, Mississauga of the New Credit. This man, Peter Edmund Jones was the first graduated doctor of the Indigenous community.  His chosen role was to be political advisor to Sir John A and this role has been kept quite a secret.  My insight is to develop a full perspective of what happened, when, how, and why - in looking at the development of the country we know as Canada.  This course will learn and teach about the possibilities of social change through using education.

Researchers claim to have solved the Mpemba effect - why warm water freezes faster than cooler water

Researchers claim to have solved the Mpemba effect - why warm water freezes faster than cooler water | Global Education-Innovations-Technology in Education | Scoop.it

team of researchers at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University believes they have solved the mystery of why warm water freezes faster than cooler water. It has to do with the way energy is stored in the hydrogen bonds between water molecules they suggest in their paper which they've uploaded to the preprint server arXiv.

The researchers demonstrate that the Mpemba paradox arises intrinsically from the release rate of energy initially stored in the covalent H-O part of the O:H-O bond in water albeit experimental conditions. Generally, heating raises the energy of a substance by lengthening and softening all bonds involved. However, the O:H nonbond in water follows actively the general rule of thermal expansion and drives the H-O covalent bond to relax oppositely in length and energy because of the inter-electron-electron pair coupling [J Phys Chem Lett 4, 2565 (2013); ibid 4, 3238 (2013)].

 

Heating stores energy into the H-O bond by shortening and stiffening it. Cooling the water as the source in a refrigerator as a drain, the H-O bond releases its energy at a rate that depends exponentially on the initially storage of energy, and therefore, Mpemba effect happens.

 

This effect is formulated in terms of the relaxation time tau to represent all possible processes of energy loss. Consistency between predictions and measurements revealed that the tau drops exponentially intrinsically with the initial temperature of the water being cooled.

Something as simple as water has mysteries. Kids can be amazed with the paradoxes and uniqueness of water's properties.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 1, 2014 12:45 PM

We are a global, connected, and digitial world and youth say they want to learn about the world and be better global citizens. Just connecting is not enough. We need a substantially different way of helping children succeed in our schools than we currently have.

Audrey's curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:01 PM

All of these facts make sense.in the 21st Century.  It is necessary to learn about other cultures as youngsters of today will be working alongside people from all over the world.  Learning at least one other language will be essential.  We should be educating children to fit into a world culture, which is being made possible through the "cloud".
