Water condensators

    Water condensators....

    Does water condensate quicker on black magnets than on other materials?

    If not, what material condensate water best?

    If you mean adsorption when you say condensation the theorical answer is simple: highly polar pores with a size just slightly larger that the water molecule. You know these small silica pellets they use to keep electronic gear dry? Quite a good thing to start with. If something is polar you will usually have little problem adsorbing water.

    And nautica already said it: temperature is quite an important factor in the equation.

    Thank you very much!

    Thanx!

    Could this be used to make materials superconducting?
