What are the main properties of water?
Cohesion, Moderation of Temperature, Solvent of Life, and Insulation of Bodies of Water by Floating Ice.
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
