Quantum model helps solve mysteries of water
These guys from the University of Edinburgh and IBM's TJ Watson Research Center are made a new model to understand the properties of water. Since there is no ultimate model but models that can reproduce certain aspects of water these scientists made a bottom up approach.
Their approach shows how a single charged particle called a 'quantum Drude oscillator' can mimic that way electrons of real water respond to their environment and fluctuate.
This simplification allows the network of hydrogen bonds and other properties like surface tension to be observed.
