Water is my Hero! Explaining the amazing properties of water

Water has many unique properties that make it crucial to life on Earth. These properties include high cohesion, polarity, adhesion, and high specific heat.

A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Water has the molecular formula of H2O.

This drop of water demonstrates both cohesion and adhesion.

Cohesion is water's ability to bond to itself. Hydrogen bonds make water molecules attracted to each other.
