Water

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

Water Molecules

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.
