Negative ions in everyday life

In this article Negative ions Learn the nature of And find out if negative ions are useful in everyday life.

Negative ions in everyday life: Physicochemical definition of anion

All matter in the world atom It consists of. Atom is Atomic nucleus and Electronic Consists of. In the atomic nucleus proton Wow neutron Contains.

Of these, the proton is plus electric potential is. The electron is negative potential. How do you judge whether it is positive or negative? Compare the number of protons and electrons in an atom. So, we determine whether the total potential is positive or negative.​

Earlier in Octet rule I briefly explained the theory of chemistry. Most atoms have the number of electrons as 2, 10, 18, etc. according to the octet rule. So the number of protons matches the atomic number. On the other hand, the number of electrons can be less or more than the atomic number. And most atoms have a difference in the number of protons and electrons.

So, if the atom has more protons than electrons, it has a positive potential and is a cation. Conversely, if the number of electrons is more than protons, they have negative potential and are negative ions.

In other words,'ion' is an atom that has a positive or negative potential. Only the number of electrons differs between ions and atoms.

Negative ions in everyday life: Source of negative ions on Earth

In the clean air outside, there are 250~300 negative ions within 1㎠. Most of the negative ions on Earth Solar wind It was carried on and came from the sun.

Therefore, there are more negative ions outdoors than indoors. Even the streets in downtown are more than clean interiors.

Negative ions in everyday life: Implications of having more negative ions outdoors than indoors

Here we come to a useful enlightenment in our daily life. Active oxygen Is said to destroy brain cells. When a general office worker is overworked, a large amount of free radicals is generated in the brain. As soon as these free radicals are generated, they destroy brain cells. This will cause a headache.

However, negative ions are the most powerful means of removing active oxygen in nature. Therefore, it is not a good idea to stay indoors and relax. It is much better to relax while breathing in the outdoor air.

Isn't it refreshing when you work in a stuffy room and then go outside to get some air? It is often said, “I go outside to get some air”. To be precise, it was to go outside to breathe negative ions.

You also have to have a hard week and take a break on the weekends. At that time, it is not good to lie on the living room sofa and watch TV. It's a tough body, but it's much better to lead it out and relax.

Negative ions in everyday life: Negative ion level measurement

Below is FTV documentary This is the result of measurement by using an anion meter at

일상 생활 속의 음이온-단위 면적당 음이온 수치 FTV
※ Negative ions per unit area: Office, house: 1 times / City street side: 1.5 times / Natural recreation forest: 4 times / Reservoir: 5 times / Beach: 12 times

일상 생활 속의 음이온-단위 면적당 음이온 수치

Mondolly will interpret this result arbitrarily. The levels of negative ions transferred from the sun to the surface will be close to natural recreational forests. Then it comes to the city street. There are car exhaust fumes. Dense humans breathe. Because of this, negative ions are consumed and the negative ions level decreases.

In other words, the exhaust gas contains a large number of cations. Negative ions are consumed to meet negative ions to form a third substance.

In other words, humans breathe. Negative ions are absorbed by the body. There are no more negative ions in the air from exhalation.

Likewise in the office, humans consume negative ions through breathing. Outside, negative ions are continuously supplied from the sun. On the other hand, negative ions are supplied to the room only when the window is temporarily opened for ventilation. Therefore, the negative ion level is the lowest.

And reservoirs and beaches have water, a source of negative ions other than the sun. So, negative ions are higher than those of natural recreational forests. Water breaks down and some of it becomes negative. The negative ion levels are far higher on the beach than in the reservoir. The reason is that the water breaks finely as the waves hit the seashore.

So, in nature, the highest negative ions are below the waterfall. It is said that 100 to 200 times the number of negative ions comes out.

Above, we have learned about negative ions in daily life. You can see that the king of negative ions is a waterfall. However, even if it is not a waterfall, there are showers or rain. It is said that the negative ion level rises tremendously. Even if you only bring an empty fishing rod, we recommend that you take a fishing break with your family on the weekend. That's why. You don't even need to fish. If you play badminton with your children in the vacant lot in front of the house, will the fatigue of the week go away.

this Negative ions What happens when you meet these free radicals. In the next article, I'll cover this in detail.
