INTRODUCTIONWater:Water is a compound that is made up of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen joined together to form a covalent bond. In this bond, the electrons favor the oxygen atom to form a polar covalent bond, causing the oxygen atom to have a slight negative charge and the hydrogen to have a slight positive charge (CUNY.edu, n.d.).AirAir is a gas that has a “low density” and is made up of “ nitrogen (78%), oxygen (20%), argon (0.93%), carbon dioxide (0.04%), plus traces of neon, helium, and methane”(MIT.edu, n.d.)
WATERWater is required for all life on earth (Ghose, 2015)It is the first thing that scientists look for on other planets to determine if life could live on that planet. It is “the key ingredient to life as we know it.” (Dunbar, 2017).Water is a gas a temperatures greater than 100oC, solid at temperatures below 0oC, and a liquid at temperatures between those (National Center for Biotechnology Information, 2004).
