Water Properties

  1. 1. Water Properties By: Afton & Taylor
  2. 2. Water is absolutely essential to life on earth. It may be one of the most familiar substances on the planet, but it certainly isn’t ordinary. In fact, water’s unique chemical properties make it so complicated that even after decades of research, scientists still have much to learn about this significant and resourceful substance. Water covers ¾ of the earth’s surface. Water is everywhere and scientists are still learning new things about it. Why is Water Unique?
  3. 3. Once the water reaches below the freezing point (32 degrees F) it turns into ice (solid). Between the freezing and boiling point is a liquid. Water becomes a liquid once it reaches 32 degrees F. Water then starts to boil at 212 degrees F. Once water reaches its boiling point it starts to give off gas (which is the releasing of oxygen into the air).
