Everything you wanted to know about Water and were 'not' Afraid to Ask!
My favorite thing in the world is to be at the ocean. To smell the sea, to feel the vastness, the sand, hear the waves and feel the wind. My sense of smell, touch, hearing and sight are all triggered into a happy place. Even my sense of taste is triggered when I swallow some salty sea by mistake.
It covers 70 Percent of the earth. We are essentially a water planet! We experience water as liquid, solid (ice) and gaseous (steam). It’s all about the temperature.
Oxygen has a slight negative charge, hydrogen has a slight positive charge, they basically love other water molecules, that’s why they ‘stick’ together, cohesion- think puddles, ponds, rivers and oceans! Water can move upward, dip a tip of a dishcloth in the water and you can see the water climb!
Water can move upward, dip a tip of a dishcloth in the water and you can see the water climb! Ever watch a paper towel get wet? This is also how plants get their water, and surface tension – think water spiders that glide and bubbles that float.
Think water skis, canoes and ducks! (to name a few)
Solid water is ice, and ice is not as dense as liquid water. Water molecules form crystalline structures at freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius) temperatures. That is why ice floats. Think ice bergs!
