water resistant means that water will not soak through your (Eg. coat) right away but after a while water will start to soak through. water resistant material are like winter jackets and stuff. they have a protective layer but are not meant for hardcore snow/rain. On the other hand water proof means that no water will ever get in. like a water proof camera or watch. these items are meant to go under water and are perfectly protected against H2o

What is water resistance?

When an object moves through the water, friction force slows it down it's called water resistance.

What is different between soda and water?

The difference between soda and water is that water is made from 2 hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Soda is man made with caffeine and sugar that is basically unhealthy if you drink it too much.

What is the difference between resistance and resistivity?

Resistance is a property of a resistor, a circuit device with a"port" of 2 connections. Resistance is ratio of voltage acrossport/current looped through it; this is constant for mostresistors. Resistivity is a bulk property of a material, ratio ofvoltage/distance to current/area through a solid. Typ (MORE)

What are the differences between air and water?

The following are a few differences between water and air (there are many more):. Water is a liquid and air is a gas. Water is a compound consisting of 2 parts hydrogen atoms and 1 part oxygen atoms, and air is about 79% nitrogen gas and 20% oxygen, plus small amounts of many other gases.. The vo (MORE)

What is the difference between oil and water?

Water is the polar molecule with molecular formula H 2 O. Crude oil (if that's what you are refering to) is a mixture of hydrocarbons. These hydrocarbons are mostly chains of carbons with hydrogen atoms attached to cabon atoms. The chains vary in length. Different lengths result in molecules with di (MORE)

Differences between land and water?

Land is the solid part of the Earth's surface not covered by a body of water while water is the clear colorless liquid, odorless and tasteless when pure, that occurs as rain, snow, and ice, forms rivers, lakes, and seas, and is essential for life. Naturally occurring water picks up color and t (MORE)

What is the difference between ice and water?

The different between ice and water is that ice is solid and water is liquid. Under standard pressure, water exists in the solid form as ice when its temperature is below 0° Celsius (32° F). It exists in liquid form between 0° and 100° Celsius.

Difference between resistance and resistivity?

Resistance is depend on ratio between voltage¤t,andoppose the current. Resistivity is depend on ratio between product of density &length to area of cross section. Answer The original answer is incorrect, as resistance does NOT dependupon the ratio of voltage and current. This ratio simply (MORE)

What is the difference between air and water?

Water is a single chemical compound in its liquid form(H20). . Air is a mixture of many elements and compounds in gaseous formand can include the gaseous form of water as one of itscomponents.

What is the difference between water and distilled water?

Water is liable to contain various things dissolved in it.. Distilled water is water that has been distilled; this means that the water has been heated to the point that some of it vapourises. This vapour is then passed over a cold surface which condenses it into water. The vapour that was produced (MORE)

What are the differences between ice and water?

Ice is the solid form of water, usually achieved by lowering water below zero (its freezing point). Ice is still water (H 2 0) but just colder. What's the difference? In a glass of liquid water, we have an unimaginable number of H 2 O molecules, slipping and sliding past one another. They make s (MORE)

What is the differences between ice and water?

Both dry ice and ice have cold temperatures and are commonly used for freezing and cooling. Ice forms at 32°F while dry ice forms at minus 109.3°F. Water ice is created when water is exposed to very low temperatures while dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide. Their main difference however lies in (MORE)

What is the difference between water and fluid?

water is a liquid. Generally Liquids and Fluids are classified. Liquids are that state of matter which have loosely arranged molecules and they are highly flowy. Fluids are that state of matter which are a little more thick than liquids that is more viscous. for example, water is a liquid and Honey (MORE)

What is air resistance and water resistance?

Air resistance is that resistance when substance moves in airand it expresses a opposite force on it. However, water restinaceis water when a substance moves thorugh water and it expresses andoppoisite force.

What is the difference between water and oxygen?

Chemically, Oxygen is a stand-alone element, where as water, or H2-0, is a compound of 2 Hydrogen and 1 Oxygen. Realistically, Oxygen is an invisible gas, while H2-0, with the addition of 2 Hydrogen atoms per Oxygen atom, liquifies and becomes visible.

What is the difference between condensate and water?

Unless any extra particles/sediments collected on the water particles(gas), they do not differ. Condensate is just when water particles(gas), have collected on an object after evaporation, and this process runs all on water. One example is when after you take a shower, the steam, (water particles/ga (MORE)

What is the difference between distilled water and double distilled water?

Distilled water - water that is recovered (condensed) overhead of a boiling source of water generally at low pressure (near atmospheric)esentially nearly all minerals remain behind in the pot and only very pure water goes overhead.\n\ndouble distilled water- due to the fact that the boiling water ca (MORE)

What is the difference between waterproof and water resistant?

water resistance is lowest level of water protection.If a device issaid to be water-resistance means it is difficult for the water toget in to the device or possibly the device may be coated withlight substance that helps the device's chance of surviving anencounter with water. Water proof means the (MORE)

What is the difference between climate and water?

Water is a colorless liquid that is the most common liquid on earth and is vital to life and may other processes on earth. Climate is the long term trend in weather over the course of decades and longer periods.

Difference between soft water and demineralized water?

Soft water is free from a bias to either alkaline or acid. Demineralized water as used in a laboratory is made from distilled water, which has then had any stray ions (Na, Si etc) removed usually by an ion-exchange resin. These processes are necessary for work with a high purity. (Trace analysis (MORE)

Does water resistant watches mean water proof watches?

Yes, but only to a certain depth. Most watches should say what depth they are able to be submerged to, for example, water resistant 30m means the watch can be submerged 30 metres deep in water without the watch taking in any water. Any deeper, it's bye-bye watch.
