Abstract
It was previously shown that the evaporation of the salt solution prepared in water with a positive electric potential, accompanied by the formation of cubic or rhombic crystals, and evaporation of the salt solution prepared in water with a negative electrical potential is accompanied by formation of needle-like crystals. It was also shown that the shape of salt crystals depends on the sign of the electric charge of the surface on which salt crystals are formed. It has been particularly shown that cubic or rhombic crystals formed on positively charged surfaces, while the needle-like crystals are formed on negatively charged surfaces. Knowing these dependencies is very productive, because it gives you an opportunity to establish a number of phenomena occurring in animate and inanimate nature. In order to popularize this idea, we propose the results obtained through its implementation. So, the knowledge of these dependencies allows us to explain the processes occurring in the storm glass during the weather change, as well as the formation of snowflakes in the clouds.
