What are the 8 unique properties of water?

Terms in this set (8)

  • Surface Tension. Cohesion allows water to pull together & forn droplets; or form an interface between it & other surfaces.
  • Adhesion. Sticking of one stubstance to another.
  • Imbibition.
  • High Specific Heat.
  • Cohesion.
  • High Heat of Vaporization.
  • Frezzing & Expansion Of Water.
  • Versatile Solvent.

What are the 4 unique properties of water?

Cohesion and Adhesion.

  • Temperature Moderation.
  • Low Density of Ice.
  • Ability to Dissolve Other Substances.
  • What are the physical and chemical properties of water?

    Physical properties of water. The molecules of water have extensive hydrogen bonds resulting to unusual properties in the condensed form. This also leads to high melting and boiling points. As compared to other liquids, water has a higher specific heat, thermal conductivity, surface tension, dipole moment etc.

    What are the properties of water at high pressure?

    Follow the links below to get values for the listed properties of liquid water at varying pressure and temperature: Boiling points at high pressure Boiling points at vacuum pressure Density, specific weight and thermal expansion coefficient Dynamic and kinematic viscosity Enthalpy and entropy Heat of vaporization

    What are the properties of water during photosynthesis?

    During the process of photosynthesis, water is oxidized to O 2. As water can be oxidized and reduced, it is very useful in redox reactions. Water has a very strong hydrating tendency due to its dielectric constant. It dissolves many ionic compounds. Some covalent and ionic compounds can be hydrolyzed in water.

    Which is an example of the amphoteric nature of water?

    Amphoteric nature: Water can act as both acid and base, which means that it is amphoteric in nature. Example: Redox reactions: Electropositive elements reduce water to hydrogen molecule. Thus water is a great source of hydrogen.
