Cohesion: Cohesion is waters ability to stick to itself. This is caused by hydrogen bonds between water molecules.

The water droplets forming small spheres is an example of cohesion

Adhesion: Water also has adhesion which is its ability to stick to other molecules.

The water droplets have adhesion which allows them to stick to the spider web.

Solvent: Water is a solvent which means it has the ability to dissolve ions and polar molecules easily.

Salt is an ionic compound so when it is poured in water, it dissolves.
