Water Quiz

TermDefinition
Density = 1 g/ml the measure of the amount of mass in a given volume or space. We viewed this in the 3D projection lab this week.
Universal solvent Water is called the "universal solvent" because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This means that wherever water goes, either through the ground or through our bodies, it takes along valuable chemicals, minerals, and nutrients.
Density = 1 g/ml the measure of the amount of mass in a given volume or space. We viewed this in the 3D projection lab this week. Density is mass divided by volume -OR- g/mL
High capillary action
Universal solvent Water is called the "universal solvent" because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This means that wherever water goes, either through the ground or through our bodies, it takes along valuable chemicals, minerals, and nutrients.
High heat capacity Water has a high heat (or thermal) capacity—it absorbs a lot of heat before it begins to get hot. This is why water is valuable to industries and in your car's radiator as a coolant.
High capillary action occurs when the adhesion to the walls is stronger than the cohesive forces between the liquid molecules.
Polar molecule (cohesive and adhesive)
High heat capacity Water has a high heat (or thermal) capacity—it absorbs a lot of heat before it begins to get hot. This is why water is valuable to industries and in your car's radiator as a coolant.
High surface tension Water has a very high surface tension. In other words, water is sticky and elastic, and tends to clump together in drops rather than spread out in a thin film, like rubbing alcohol. Surface tension is responsible for capillary action, which allows water (

How Is Water Unique Water is unique in that it is the only natural substance that is found in all three physical states—liquid, solid, and gas—at the temperatures normally found on Earth.

Hydrophilic a material that soaks up water (like the paper in the lab)
Hydrophobic : a material that repels water (like the shaving cream in the lab) or does not soak up water.
Interesting Facts 71% of Earth is covered with water
Interesting Facts 2 Most of the water is ocean (97%)
interesting Facts 3 Less than 3% of the Earth’s water is freshwater Of the 3%, most is frozen (glaciers, icebergs, ground ice, and permafrost) Less than 1% is found in groundwater and lakes (our source of fresh water)
Water Cycle Water moves through the water cycle which is driven by energy from the sun. The water cycle includes anything on Earth where water is found.
