Water Questions and Answers (Q&A)

There are many correct answers to this question, as there are many differences between water and vinegar. While they are both liquids, water is more important than vinegar. This is because it covers the Earth's surface and is vital for all life forms. Vinegar is acidic, while water is not.

This can be identified through their taste, which is another difference between them. This difference is that vinegar has a taste, while water does not. Along with that, it has a strong odor. Another characteristic they share is that they both have molecules. The difference is that the molecule of water is two hydrogens and one oxygen. Vinegar has 2 Carbon, 4 Hydrogen, and 2 Carbons.

Capillary action is a special property of the water molecules, which is due to the water molecules adhering to one another. When these water molecules are applied to a tube like structure such as the root or vessel wall causes an upward force. This causes the liquid to move up the tube.

This is possible due to the surface tension on the water surface due to adhesion between water molecules. This causes the surface of the water to become unbreakable. The capillary action results because the force between the walls of the tube and the water molecules is much higher than the forces between the liquid molecules.

The correct answer to this question is No; water doesn't have a taste. Despite that, there are different types of water available that may taste different. For example, I prefer Aquafina water, but I don't like the taste of Dasani water. Both waters have no traditional taste, but they have different tastes due to the minerals that each water has. The same goes for tap water, which some people may not like due to the way it tastes.

Though every person may have a preference for the type of water they want, water is known for not having a taste because it doesn't activate the receptors of the tongue.

Have you ever heard of groundwater? That’s the same thing as a water table. The concept is pretty easy. A water table is a layer of water that is under the ground - often deep enough that it cannot easily be accessible from the top of the earth’s crust. People on well water often depend on this groundwater, which can be one hundred, one hundred and fifty, and even three hundred feet below the surface of the earth. That’s a long way for water to come, which can be difficult in the winter when pipes freeze.

Some places even have two water tables: one for winter and one for summer. The winter one is closer to the ground level and sometimes dries up in the summer as everyone has used it in the winter.

Water has no odor or taste; however, oil, on the other hand, does have an odor and taste. Water is a polar substance. Polar molecules are the product of polar bonding between atoms in which the electrons are not shared equally.

This bonding happens when two different particles bind together from two distinct elements, as opposed to two atoms from the same foundations, which do not form polar bonds. Water can be used for drinking, hygiene, and agriculture. Hands down, water is the more popular solvent. Oil and water are both used for painting and lubrication, and water comes in three states, which include liquids, solids, and gases.

The correct answer to this question is Specific heat. The body is smart. It can indicate specific temperature situations that the body is in. When the body is cold, it shivers to generate heat. The body can also indicate when it is too hot.

To cool the body down quickly, the body sweats to release some of the heat. Humans have sweat glands in their body. These glands activate when the body knows it needs to cool the temperature down quickly. Humans are unique in having sweat glands, for not all mammals have them. While horses and other large primates have them, many others don't.

The truth is, without water it will be practically impossible for living things on earth to survive. Water is used for a variety of things and it is available in a very large proportion covering about 70 percent of the earth. The so many properties of water have made it a must for every living thing on earth to use. Water is a great component required by plants for photosynthesis.


Without water it will be a bit harder for plants to produce their own foods. Living things also depend on water to sustain their life. Water is required for cooking. The digestive process in the body is incomplete without the addition of water, this is because water is very needed for digestion. Water also has the capacity to dissolve a greater percentage of things on earth. Due to this, water is used as solvent in the industries for a lot of processes.

Sea water is the best conductor of electricity because it has a high salt content. Salt molecules are made of sodium ions and chlorine ions. When you put salt in water, the water molecules pull the sodium and chlorine ions apart so they are floating freely. These ions are what carry electricity through water.

Pure water is not very conductive, and only a tiny bit of current can move through the water. When salt or sodium chloride (NaCl) is dissolved in it, however, the salt molecules split into two pieces, a sodium ion and a chlorine ion. The sodium ion is missing an electron, which gives it a positive charge. The chlorine ion has an extra electron, giving it a negative charge.

The answer to this question is E. This polar bear is relying on the density of the water in relation to the ice cap. The density of water is what allows all things, including animals, to float. Since this polar bear is standing on a small ice cap which is floating, the density of the water is what is allowing the bear to stay afloat.

This shows that the ice cap has a higher density than the water it is floating on. If something with a higher density than water is placed in water it will sink to the bottom. Therefore this ice cap must have a lower density than the water below.

The term “endergonic” is a term that is found in the scientific branch of biology and chemistry. It refers the amount of energy it takes to create the chemical reaction is greater than the energy that comes out of the chemical reaction. The opposite is the exergonic reaction. When there is a synthesis of glucose from carbon dioxide and water, it creates a process called endergonic.

A chemical synthesis is when a reaction occurs chemically and the result is more complex than before. Glucose is the simple sugar. According to its formula, it is made up of six carbon atoms, six oxygen atoms and twelve hydrogen atoms. This sounds right since carbon dioxide and water contain the same atoms, but in different amounts.
