Properties of water?
1. Water occurs naturally on earth in three forms: solid, liquid, and gas.
2. It has the ability to dissolve so many substances; that is, to act as a universal solvent.
3. Water has the ability to carry an electric current.
4. Water has a high surface tension.
5. water has a specific heat capacity.
6. It has a hydrophilic nature.
7. It has low density.
8. It undergoes hydrogen bonding.
9. When it freezes the solid (ice) is lower density than the liquid which is extremely unusual.
10. Water is a neutral molecule.
Do the physical properties of water change when a compound is dissolved in water. If so which properties change and why?
It is not practically possible to find out all the properties of water at once. As Physical Properties are Physical Water Properties Facts about water Adhesion/Cohesion Capillary action Color Compressibility Density and weight Heat capacity Meniscus Rainbows (light) Surface tension Suspended sediment Temperature Turbidity Vapor pressure Water, the universal solvent Chemical Water Properties Conductivity Dissolved oxygen Hardness pH Salinity
1 = when we mix the water with the benzene or any other non polar solvents it does"t miscible with that, this is a chemical reaction from this reaction we can say water has polar properties 2 from above we can say water is polar , in polar solvents inter atomic attractions are more due to this it has high MP like these we can explain all properties
Answer Impurities tend to increase the boiling point and lower the freezing point. in a way boiling point of salty water > boiling point of fresh water freezing properties of salty water < freezing properties of fresh water melting properties of salty water < melting properties of fresh water .Salt water, contains NaCl, which ionizes into Na and Cl ions. when ions are added to a solvent, such as water, they tend to increase the…
Water is the most common liquid used to dilute solutions (reduce their strength). Adding anything to water will not change its properties, only introduce other chemical properties. That is, if you added alcohol to water, you would be diluting the alcohol, not the water. You can moderate some of the properties of water by heating or cooling it, or adding solid solutes to make a gel or suspension.
