DIAPERS AND QUANTUM PHYSICS: FAQ



What makes diapers so absorbent?

Diapers use a material called super-absorbent polymer (SAP), which can absorb large amounts of liquid due to its molecular structure and the presence of sodium ions.

How does SAP work?

SAP has a mesh-like molecular structure. When it contacts water, the sodium ions in SAP attract water molecules, which then get trapped in the mesh, forming a gel.

Why do water molecules get absorbed by SAP?

Water molecules are attracted to the sodium ions in SAP. This attraction is strong due to the quantum physics principle where electrons are shared between sodium and oxygen atoms in water.

How do other materials compare to SAP?

• Cotton: Absorbs water well but only in small amounts.

• Rubber: Repels water due to its molecular structure that does not attract water molecules.

What role does quantum physics play in this process?

Quantum physics explains the attraction between sodium ions and water molecules. Electrons, which behave as waves, are shared between atoms, making the SAP highly effective at absorbing water.

Can other liquids be absorbed by SAP?

The absorption depends on the ions involved. Sodium’s strong attraction to water makes SAP effective, but different ions might work differently with other liquids.

What’s inside a diaper?

If you cut open a diaper, you’ll find a white powder (SAP) beneath the cotton layers. This powder is responsible for the high absorption capacity.

Why should we thank quantum physics for diapers?

Quantum physics explains the electron sharing that makes SAP so effective at absorbing water, ensuring diapers keep babies dry and parents happy.
