Why is water the most precious molecule for life?
Hi, my question is ?How do water molecules go out from our laundry so it gets dry??
June: Water and Air
Water is a very interesting molecule made up of only one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. Even if it seems simple, all life on Earth is dependent on it for survival. In the sixth video of the Chemistry Calendar, we explore some of the chemical properties that make water so unique.
The Chemistry Calendar 2011 is a joint project between Molecular Frontiers, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg and Universeum. We work together with film company Untamed Science to launch a video per month during the International Year of Chemistry 2011.
For teachers: Teaching material, including descriptions of lab experiments can be found in the Teachers section on MoleClues!
The video has subtitles that can be activated through the CC icon in the YouTube toolbar.
