There are many correct answers to these questions, as water and oil have many differences between them. Between the two, water is more important than oil. This is because it covers the Earth's surface and is vital for all life forms. Water has no odor, nor does it have a taste.

When it comes to oil, oil has both a taste and an odor. Another difference between them is that water is a polar substance. This means that the polar bond between atoms and the electrons are not shared. Water is also known as being a popular solvent because of how easy it dissolves.

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.
