Property of water: Water is polar, this
means that its a good solvent.Water can
dissolve polar and ions making it a
universal solvent as all reactions take
place in water.Its also a metaboilic
product of hydrolysis and condensation.
Property of water: water is less
dense than water, this helps ice
float on the surface and organisms
live beneath the surface
Property of water: high surface
tension.Having a high surface
tension allows organism like pond
skaters to live on top.
property of water: strong cohesive and
high tensile strength. this allows columns
of water to be drawn up the xylem vessels.
(cohevise tension theory)
Property of water: high transmission
and colourless, this allows aqauatic
plants to photosynthesise as light can
be passed through.
property of water:high
latent of vaporisation this
allows thebody to cool
down eg sweating.
Property of water:high specific heat
capacity,this stops a sudden change of
temerpaturein water, it prevents
fluctuations of temperature allowing
aquatic animals live in a thermally stable
