Electron Beam
« on: July 22, 2008, 05:05:09 PM »

Does anyone know what the effect on the water molecule could be if you passed an electron stream through it?

If there was no effect why not?


ps: it may be a rubbish question but I am a complete novice.

thanks again

Water is a polar molecule, therefore it could arrange itself such that the delta+ end forming attraction with the stream of electrons. Perhaps some will get deflected due to the lone pair on oxygen atoms as well as the delta- end.
No matters what results are waiting for us, it's nothing but the DESTINY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, because we deal with huge quantity of energy there is possibility for formation of ionic water molecules in excited state (singlet or/and triplet) which have very different chemical properties. This may be a reason for intense declusterization or intense clusterization (as you know the water exist in clusters of approximately 70-1000 molecules), or reason for generating oxygen or hydrogen radicals.... there are 1000....00000 possibilities
