The Different Properties of Water Brandon Murphy(Bmurph) and Matt Pelletier (Matthy Pellits)

Water- Also known as H2O, which means there 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom. In addition the hydrogen atoms have a slight positive charge and the oxygen has slightly a negative charge. Water has four main properties such as surface tension, cohesion,adhesion, and lastly polarity.

Water displays the property of Adhesion. Which basically means the attraction of molecules of different substances.

As you see the water is almost sticking to the wire and or the other substances on the wire.

Cohesion- the attraction between molecules of the exact same substance. In this case water because the hydrogen bonds are able to have a grasp on other objects/ substances. The Cohesion water molecules will start to cause Surface Tension.

The cause and relation of cohesion and surface tension is done by this example of the bug.

Surface Tension- the property of the surface of a liquid, which cause water to resist an external force. This comes in relation to cohesion.

The ability to have some type of resistance, like when you are able to have a paper clip not float but have surface tension between the water and the paper clip.

Polarity- When the two hydrogen atoms are smaller than the oxygen atom. Water has a negative and positive, like a magnet which makes water polar. Now the hydrogen atoms have a positive charge and the oxygen have a negative charge.

Hydrogen Bonds are also known as the connection between different water molecules.
This is H2O molecules combing into hydrogen bonds.
