53-interesting-water-facts-you-didnt-know

Often our knowledge of our world does not go beyond the boundaries of the school curriculum of chemistry, physics or biology, magazines, films and everything we learned from the Galileo TV show. However, we are surrounded by many extraordinary things, such as water, which seems to have appeared in the universe just a billion years after the Big Bang, and has since become the basis for the birth of every form of life known to us.

 

Facts about water may surprise and even scare

 

Bemorepanda has picked up another batch of amazing things you may not have known about water.

 

 

1. Up to 80% of diseases in developing countries are associated with poor water supply and unsanitary conditions. According to a study, one in six people in the world live without regular access to safe drinking water. More than 2.4 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation.

 

2. The study showed that in the US, manufacturers spend an average of 1.39 liters of water to produce 1 liter of sparkling water. This is lower than in the world, where this value is 2.02 liters. Meanwhile, 4 liters of water are needed per liter of beer, 4.74 liters for wine. Strong alcohol, it turns out, is the most wasteful - for its production you need 34.55 liters of water per liter of drink.

 

3. 68.7% of our planet's fresh water is stored in ice.

 

4. Now there is about the same amount of water on Earth as it was millions of years ago.

 

5. The dishwasher uses 7-14 liters of water per wash cycle, while hand washing uses approximately 75 liters.

 

6. Drinking too much water can be fatal.

 

7. It takes about 5000 liters of water to produce 500 sheets of A4 paper.

 

8. The water in the Atlantic Ocean is more salty than in the Pacific.

 

 

9. Since water is much denser than air, the speed of sound in it is about five times the speed of sound in air. The speed of sound in pure water is 1500 m/s, and in air it is 335 m/s.

 

10. Under certain conditions, hot water can freeze faster than cold water. This effect is called the Mpemba paradox.

 

11. Water can be described as a sticky liquid with high surface tension - the water molecules tend to cling to each other, which creates a large and strong bond between them. However, there are fewer water molecules on the surface to cling to because there is air on top (where there are no water molecules). This leads to a stronger bond between those molecules that are in contact with each other, creating a layer of tightly bound water.

 

12. Pure water, which, by the way, does not exist in nature, does not conduct electricity. Water becomes a conductor when the substances surrounding it begin to dissolve in it. By the way, water that can be conditionally considered “clean” is ordinary distilled water (water condensed from steam). There is also "pure" deionized water (used in laboratories), which can still contain ions.

 

13. A leaky faucet that drips water at a rate of one drop per second can lead to water overruns of more than 11,000 liters per year.

17. A leaking toilet can result in about 760 liters of water being wasted daily.

 

18. Due to evaporation, the pool loses about 3785 liters of water per month.

 

19. Although the earth has as much fresh water as it has ever had, the demand for water has risen sharply due to rapid population growth, leaving the world's water resources scarce. Only 1 percent of the world's fresh water is readily available, and most of it is in glaciers and snow. In fact, only 0.007 percent of the planet's water is available to sustain 8 billion people.

 

20. In 1944, two scientists decided to give up water for an experiment - one for three days, the other for four days. However, they stopped the experiment, as their condition from dehydration worsened dramatically. If they continued their dry hunger strike, there was a risk to life.

 

21. In Canada, there is more water underground than on the surface.

 

22. Water regulates the Earth's temperature. For example, the ocean influences weather and climate by storing solar radiation, distributing heat and moisture around the world, and controlling weather events.

 

23. Beneath the frozen surface of Enceladus, Saturn's moon, there is an ocean of liquid water.

 

24. 85% of the world's population lives in the driest half of the planet.

 

25. The first water pipes that appeared in the United States were made of burnt logs, in which a hole was drilled or were made of boards.

 

 

26. On average, 1,771 liters of water are required to refine one barrel of crude oil.

 

27. The percentage of water in the body varies in different periods of life: in the womb, the fetus is 95% water, at birth - 75%, adolescents are 65% water, adults - 60% and the elderly - 55% % of your body weight.

 

28. Jellyfish is 95% water.

 

29. In Africa, women spend about 200 million hours a day collecting water. That's about 40 billion hours a year.

 

30. Usually, 3000-5000 liters of water are required to produce 1 kg of rice.

 

31. Globally, 44% of household wastewater is not treated safely and properly.

 

32. If the water of the whole world could fit in a 4-liter container, then the fresh water available to us would be only about one tablespoon.

 

33. If you drink water on an empty stomach, it will enter your bloodstream within 5 minutes after the first sip.

 

34. The weight that a person loses after intense physical activity depends on water, not fat.

 

 

35. 2 billion people in the world drink water from sources that are contaminated with faeces.

 

36. When water freezes, it expands by 9 percent.

 

37. The average cost of cold water in Russia in 2022 (with a consumption of 4-7 m3 per month) was 25-38 rubles/m3.

 

38. According to some estimates, more than 147,000 liters of water are used to produce one car.

 

39. 90% of water-related diseases are due to unsafe water supply, unsanitary conditions and poor hygiene. Moreover, children in developing countries are most often ill.

 

40. 69% of fresh water in the world is used for agriculture.

 

41. More than a quarter of all bottled water is taken from the municipal water supply - the same place where ordinary tap water comes from.

 

42. According to forecasts, by 2050 the global demand for water will increase by 20-30%.

 

43. Poor water supply and sanitation in developing countries is estimated to cost $260 billion a year in economic losses.

 

44. In plants, water defies gravity.

 

 

45. Water is the only substance on Earth that occurs in nature in three forms: liquid, solid and gaseous.

 

46. ​​Water that is ejected from hydrothermal vents on the seafloor can reach temperatures of up to 400º Celsius.

 

47. Using rice water to wash your hair can make your hair healthier and stronger.

 

48. If all the water vapor in the atmosphere of our planet fell on the Earth in the form of water and was evenly distributed over it, it would cover the globe with water only 2-3 cm deep.

 

49. The earliest known example of interstate conflict over water is between 2500 and 2350 BC between the Sumerian states of Lagash and Umma.

 

50. Flat-headed spatula, Australian desert frog, storing water in its body, can store it for up to two years.

 

51. Scientists suggest that the water in the oceans of the Earth appeared due to the fall of water-bearing celestial bodies that collided with our planet in the early stages of the formation of the solar system. Like today's ice-rich asteroids or comets.

 

52. Fluoridation of tap water has been proven to prevent tooth decay. Many scientific studies have shown the safety and benefits of fluoridated water. For example, in the US, people have been drinking fluoride-infused water for 75 years, leading to improved dental health.

 

53. Approximately 1 billion years after the Big Bang, water appeared in the Universe. According to astrophysicists, the first water molecules appeared in the era of the birth of the first stars, which indicates that already 10-11 billion years ago there was the possibility of the existence of life in one form or another.

facts-from-the-filming-of-strange-world-a-new-cartoon-that-was-released-in-2022

Disney releases its next full-length animated cartoon "Weird World". This cartoon is an adventure story about a family of reluctant explorers trying to get through the surreal and uncharted land that hides under their house.

 

Behind-the-scenes facts about the new Disney cartoon

 

The film features contemporary stars including Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Jabuki Young-White, Gabrielle Union and Lucy Liu.

 

Let's delve into the behind-the-scenes secrets behind the creation of this weird Weird World together and see 16 behind-the-scenes facts about the new Disney cartoon...

 

1. Jake Gyllenhaal was thrilled to be involved from the start, telling Roy and director Don Hall that if he was going to do it, he wanted to be a part of it.

 

2. Lucy Liu dated Roy and his team three times before accepting the role of Callisto Mal

Unfortunately, during their second meeting, Lucy decided that the role was "not hers". In an effort to get her involved, Roy and his team left and developed the character, making Callisto more of an adventurer as well as the president of Avalonia. After meeting for the third time, Lucy was happy about the change and accepted the role.

 

3. Gabrielle Union didn't do a lot of voice work before joining the cast of Weirdworld, but Roy felt she was very good at it.

Describing her participation in the recording, Roy explained that Gabrielle was insecure at first despite her experience, but her performance was ultimately "overwhelming".

 

4. Jabuk Young-White often improvised, but many of his improvisations, unfortunately, did not make it into the film!

Don Hall was rave about Jabuk when talking about his casting, commenting that he "fits well" due to his comedic skills and improvisation. According to Don, Jabuk produced a "mountain of material" that, unfortunately, apparently had to be expunged.

 

5. The Clay family's three-legged dog, Legend, wasn't originally part of the story - until famed storyboard artist Bernie Mattinson encouraged the team to include the character.

Bernie, who worked on countless Disney films and was the longest-serving employee of the Walt Disney Company, believed that a dog would ground the family in the real world. The team followed Bernie's advice and named the dog Legend, which is Bernie's own nickname on the Disney team.

 

6. Don Hall's father worked on a farm in Iowa, which is where the inspiration for some of the characters came from.

In fact, much of the film is inspired by Don and Key's families and their relationship with their children. Key, speaking about the inspiration for "Weird World", said that it was "a letter to our fathers and our children... [one of our motivations] was just to create a great father and son story."

 

7. The animators wanted the "weird world" underground setting to be neither green nor brown, these colors could only be seen in the Avalonia setting above ground

So the world under Avalonia is basically bubblegum pink with some other bright hues.

 

8. Once an animator brought a sausage as inspiration for one of the creatures, in particular transport azura

Many of the creatures in Avalonia below were inspired by random objects and creatures, from sausages to microbes to deep sea creatures!

 

9. The sequence in which the Seeker, Jaeger and Ethan are chased by creatures through the bizarre Avalonian terrain appears to be 5 km in the computer

It's hard to calculate, but according to Ron, the animators actually designed about 5km of "world" for this one scene alone.

 

10. The entire production cycle took about four years and began with the fact that the animators called up via video call to organize and collaborate on design

Subsequently, of course, the animators began to work more closely already in the working environment of the studio.

 

11. Roy personally prefers hand-drawn animation (he started working on films like Treasure Planet and The Hunchback of Notre Dame), but CGI was ultimately chosen for the film.

The decision to move to a CGI style was partly due to the desired aesthetic of the world below, full of vibrant colors and varied textures.

 

12. His favorite character is Splat, an amorphous blob who joins the Clayde family once they are trapped in the "strange world" beneath Avalonia.

Splat went through several redesigns in order to find the perfect version of the character. Don Hall compared Splat's approach to animation to Aladdin's sentient flying carpet, as both had to communicate through pantomime.

 

13. The Weird World team has been with Disney for years.

 

Roy has produced everything from The Hunchback of Notre Dame to Rapunzel: Tangled. Don is also known for his work on City of Heroes and Moana, while screenwriter Qui Nguyen previously co-wrote Raya and the Last Dragon.

 

14. The film was influenced not only by stories such as "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "King Kong", but also magazines of the last century

Don shared that as a child he liked to read old editions of tabloid magazines in which adventurers discover hidden worlds and strange creatures.

 

15. Roy, Don and Kwai really wanted NOT to kill their mother in this story... For once!

“So often they kill their mother – think of The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo! We didn't want to do that, instead we wanted to include a mother figure in the story," Roy explained.

 

16. And finally, a fun fact: this movie is the first movie to use the Disney 100 logo in the Disney 100th Anniversary intro!

60-quotes-from-marie-curie-for-whom-physics-is-a-profession

Marie Curie (1876-1934), a Polish-French experimental scientist, became known worldwide for her scientific discoveries in the field of physics and chemistry, which played an essential role in the scientific revolution. And her merits did not go unnoticed by the scientific community - Marie Curie became the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize (for research on radioactivity), and the first person in history to receive the Nobel Prize twice. In addition, Maria was the first female professor at the University of Paris. From the above, it is easy to understand that she had extraordinary talent and thinking.

Dust, the air in the room, and clothes, everything becomes radioactive.”

 

41. "After all, science is essentially international, and it is only because of the lack of historical meaning that national qualities are attributed to it."

 

42. “We must not allow ourselves to believe that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gears, although these mechanisms have their own beauty. I also don't believe that the spirit of adventurism is in danger of disappearing from our world."

 

43. “Unfamiliar with Paris, I was lost in the big city, but the feeling that I live there alone, taking care of myself without anyone's help, did not depress me at all. If sometimes I felt lonely, then my usual state of mind was peace and great moral satisfaction.

46. ​​“When radium was discovered, no one knew that it would be useful in hospitals. The work was purely scientific. And this is proof that scientific work should not be considered in terms of its direct usefulness.

 

47. “In 1906, just at the moment when we finally abandoned the old laboratory in the barn where we were so happy, there was a terrible catastrophe that took my husband from me and left me alone to raise our children and at the same time continue our research work.

He came to tell us about this pernicious effect of radium, exclaiming both admiringly and annoyedly: "I love him, but I have a complaint about him."

 

50. “We believe that the substance that we have extracted from pitchblende contains a metal that has not yet been discovered, related to bismuth in its analytical properties. If the existence of this new metal is confirmed, we propose to call it polonium, after the name of the country of origin of one of us."

 

51. “Chemically, radium differs little from barium; the salts of these two elements are isomorphic, while the radium salts are usually less soluble than the barium salts.

 

52. “All my thoughts were focused on my studies, which, especially at the beginning, was difficult. In fact, I was not sufficiently prepared to take the course in physical sciences at the Sorbonne, because, despite my best efforts, I did not manage to get in Poland the same complete training as the French students attending the same course.
