4 properties of water (on test)
1. High specific heat; this is the requirement of high amount of energy to change the temperature of water. this allows the body to maintain a realtively constant body temperature. As a result blood doesn't boil when external temp. increases
2. High heat of vaporization: requirement of high amount of energy to change the water from a liquid to a gas. this allows the evaporation of sweat to cool the body.
3. polarity: due to the unequal sharing of electrons the oxygen end of the water has a relative negative charge & the hydrogens has a relatively positive charge. this allow water to be a universal solvent. it can dissolve everything but lipids
4. Cohesion: due to the hydrogen bonds in water it acts as a unit. it flows & doesn't separate. this allows water to function in the lubrication of joints and as shock absorber.
