Water Cohesion : to form drops , surface tension causes them to be nearly spherical
Water Adhesion : keeps it in place
Polarity : when electrons are not shared equally in a covalent bond
Heat Storage : water is commonly used to store thermal heat energy
The water molecule is formed from two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom ( H2O). The bonding angle of the two hydrogens is almost 105 degrees rather than 180 degrees which would make the molecule symmetrical.
