Introduction: The purpose of this report is to provide findings regarding the research question: Can the water crisis be solved with smart personal decisions and engineering solutions? As an engineering student, I tend to see problems in analytical ways and water can be very analytical due to its chemistry and polarity. As a molecule, water is polar, which means that it can hold a slight charge and because of that characteristics oceans don’t boil off at the slightest provocation, clouds form and rain falls, and ice floats rather than sinks. Water’s unique properties also enables it to defy gravity, allowing it to climb upward into plants, and makes it an exceptional solvent as well as an acid or base, so it can facilitate biochemical reactions. On planet earth, the supply of water is limited and has always been for millions of years. For all animals in this planet, water is both essential and irreplaceable for life as we know it.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
