Break the Ice! How does ionic interference affect the strength of ice?
Region:Carlton Trail
City:Wakaw, SK, Foam Lake, SK
Abstract:The strength of ice is a concern for many people in our society - from curlers, hockey players, ice-road truckers to ice fishers. Our project investigates the parameters of ice strength by attempting to generate a mathematical relation between electrical resistance of water samples and the strength of ice produced from the sample. Our initial results show the possibility of generating a useful relation.
