Water, water, everywhere!

So as I sit in the tree, all I can see is water! Here is a post to share with all you intrepid explorers a fountain of knowledge.

Water has the chemical name H2O and so contains 2 molecules of hydrogen and 1 molecule of oxygen.

The overall shape the water molecule takes is a bent shape with an angle of 104.5

Water has many physical properties which make it so special. It has cohesive properties,  a high specific heat capacity, surface tension, it has the ability to move up a tube against theforce of gravity (capillary action), and it is also a solvent.

Though it is clear that when water is falling all around us, we really don't like it but it isimportant to remember the necessity of water for our own survival.
