http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/zero-conditional.html The Zero ConditionalWe can make a zero conditional sentence with two present simple (Pr.S) verbs(one in the if clause and one in the main clause): If + present simple, .... present simple.This conditional is used when the result will always happen.So, if water reaches 100 degrees, it always boils. Its a fact. Im talking in general,not about one particular situation. The result of the if clause is always the mainclause. The if in this conditional can usually be replaced by when withoutchanging the meaning. For example: When water reaches 100 degrees, it boils.(It is always true, there cant be a different result sometimes). If I eat peanuts, IAm sick. (This is true only for me, maybe, not for everyone, but its still true thatIm sick every time I eat peanuts). Here are some more examples:If people eat too much, they get fat. If you touch a fire, you get burned.People die if they dont eat. You get water if you mix hydrogen and oxygen.Snakes bite if they are scared. If babies are hungry, they cry
