Earth’s Hydrosphere aka – The water Planet!. Key Terms: Polar Molecule Capillary action Surface tension Solution Solvent Specific heat Evaporation Condensation Adhesion Cohesion. Hydrosphere: the water (as vapors, lakes, oceans etc.) of the earth. THE STRUCTURE OF WATER
the water (as vapors, lakes, oceans etc.) of the earth.
Hydrogen Atom: each hydrogen atom has a slight positive charge
Oxygen Atom: The oxygen atom has a slight negative charge
The properties of water include:
-High specific heat
What is the advantage of the interaction of water and fibers in clothing?
is the tightness across the surface of water that is caused by the polar molecules pulling on one another.
Solution: is a mixture that forms when one substance dissolves another.
Solvent: is the substance doing the dissolving.
Specific Heat: and carbon dioxide.
is the amount of heat needed to increase the temperature of a certain mass of a substance by 1°C.
Water requires a lot of heat to increase its temperature due to the strong attraction among its molecules.
Question: and carbon dioxide.
What effect does water’s high specific heat index have on land areas? How does it affect where you live?
The three states of water and carbon dioxide.
What are some examples of Evaporation? and carbon dioxide.
Adhesion: the ability of water to stick firmly to something not similar to it. (i.e. water to another substance)
Cohesion: the force of attraction by which the molecules of water, solid or liquid, tend to remain together. ( i.e. water to water)
Activity: and carbon dioxide.
