Virus Heat Up WaterA team at Drexel University have found a way to make water boil three times more quickly. The technique works by covering a heating element with a virus found in tobacco plants. The coating decreases the size and number of bubbles that form around the element, which in turn increases the heat transfer to the liquid
When I read this I thought that's amazing !...and then I thought how does such an experiment come into being ? What made someone think to use a virus that is found in tobacco plants ? was it arrived by deductive reasoning ? How did they discover that a virus found in a tobacco plant is great at heat transfer ?
