Four Properties of Water
1. High Heat Capacity
2. Water is a Solvent
3. Water is Cohesive
4. Frozen Water is Less Dense than Liquid Water
The amount of energy associated with the movement of the atoms and molecules in a body of matter.
A measure of the intensity of heat, reflecting the average speed of molecules.
The property of a liquid whereby the surface becomes cooler during evaporation (liquid to gas).
Tendency of molecules to stick together. It results from hydrogen bonds. Important for surface tension and water transport in plants.
Dissolving agent in a solution.
Substance that is dissolved in a solution.
Liquid consisting of homogenous mixture of two or more substances: solvent and solute.
A solution in which water is the solvent.
A substance that increases the hydrogen ion (H+) concentration in a solution (lower pH).
A substance that decreases the hydrogen ion concentration in solution (raises pH).
Measure of relative acidity of a solution ranging from zero (most acidic) to fourteen (most basic).
