Description

Why does a stream of water bend when a static charge is brought near it? This experiment and variations of it are explored as several theories are introduced and a variety of tests are offered to for further investigation. For many years I have offered the the explanation that water bends as a result of the dipolar nature of water and it's ability to orient itself towards an attract charge. Further research of this experiment and some some simple experimentation suggests that there is much more going on than this theory explains. Many of the experiments shown here were designed on the spot so I have not fully concluded their significance or lack of it. I anticipate that many viewers have a better working knowledge of this phenomenon and will offer some insight into what I have missed or where I am wrong. I look forward to any helpful insight that is offered. Here is a short listing of some websites that have offered information on bending water. feel free of offer additional sites in the comments.
