Tree Map of Water Properties Properties of Water Universal Solvent Cohesion and Adhesion Polarity Density And Buoyancy Specific Heat
Water is called the "universal solvent" because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. –Solvent-in a solution, the liquid in which a solid dissolves –Solute-in a solution, the molecule dissolved in the solvent
Cohesion-the force that holds molecules of a single material together Adhesion-the attractive force between two different substances that are in contact with each other
Water is polar because the oxygen has a partial negative charge and the hydrogen atoms each have a partial positive charge; polar molecules interact with other polar and charged molecules and ions O-O- H+H+ H+H+
Density-the amount of the stuff/material in an object –Density = Mass/Volume Buoyancy-Will it sink or float? –Used to determine if objects will float on the surface of water.
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance 1 degree Celsius Water has a high specific heat index. Water can absorb a lot of heat before it begins to get hot.
