1 Scientific Method
1.1 a series of steps/process where a question is asked, an experiment is done, and an answer is found. Steps include: observation, question, hypothesis, prediction, experiment, results, and conclusion.
2 Water
2.1 water molecules
2.1.1 molecules stay close together due to hydrogen bonding. many molecules are linked by multiple hydrogen bonds (cohesion)
2.2 specific heat
2.2.1 the amount of heat that must be absorbed or lost for 1g of that substance to change its temperature by 1'C. Water has a high specific heat.
2.3 hydrophobic substances
2.3.1 substances that are nonionic and nonpolar, they repel water (ex: oil and water)
2.4 pH in the body
2.4.1 there are many pH's in the body: saliva and urine are 6, human blood and tears are 7, and inside of the small intestine is 8

4.3 Essential elements
4.3.1 elements that an organism needs to live a healthy life and reproduce
