  1. Surface Tension
    • -Water's ability to support a specific amount of weight
    • -the force of the H20 molecules
    • Ex. Water striders (living example of paper clip)
  2. Adhesion
    • Water's ability to stick to other things
    • Ex. water + microscope slide
  3. Capillary Action
    • water traveling through tubes
    • Xylen & Pholem- transfer H2O & nutrients to plants
    • Ex. water + celery
  4. Cohesion
    • When water "sticks" to water
    • Polarity allows cohesion to be present
    • Ex. water + penny
  5. Polar
    • Possesses a (+) and (-) charge
    • Ex. water
  6. Cohesion + Adhesion
    • Graduated cylinder + water
    • Ex. Meniscus- dip where you measure liquid in graduated cylinder
  7. Hydrophobic
    • Cannot mix with water
    • Ex. water + oil
  8. Hydrophilic
    • Can mix with water
    • Ex. sugar + water
  9. Phases of Water
    • Condensation (G to L)
    • Evaporation (L to G)
    • Melt (S to L)
    • Freeze (L to S)
    • Sublimation (S to G)
