Water is conductive and thus can receive radiation. The electrons are
not totally bound to the molecule meaning water is a weak plasma. I am
interested in knowing what the plasma frequency is for water,
empirically or from calculations.
Plasma frequency=omega=(4*pi*n*e^2/me)^0.5

Hi, thank you for submitting your question to Answers.Google, I hope I
can provide the information you are seeking.

The plasma frequency of water (h-2-o) is Z(0), between 9 and 10 Hertz
(cycles per second.)

Definition of empirical, google search term: define:empirical

based on experience or observational information and not necessarily
on proven scientific data. In the past, vaccine trials have been
performed based exclusively on empirical data and without a full
understanding of the disease processes or correlates of immunity.

Thank you again for turning to Answers.Google for help. If I
understood your question as intended, I believe 10 Hz. is the
empirical answer you were requesting.
