Water Mystery, Revealed By Scientists




The scientists have discovered the physical properties of water. As per the study, water hits a crossover temperature and start moving from one liquid state to another, when heated between 40 and 60 degrees Celsius.

The Scientists aimed to understand the real property of water by keeping its necessity for life on earth in mind. The scientists have explained water as the most complex natural resource on earth. Additionally, water has the highest surface tension of all liquids not only this it’s the only known substance whose solid state can float in its liquid state. Unlike any other known substance, water expands when it freezes.

The researchers added that the water has a strange boiling point. The boiling points of other hydrides, such as hydrogen telluride and hydrogen sulphide, go down as their minute particle size decreases. However, H2O has a large boiling point for small molecular weight. Gradually, once the water hit 40 degrees, things started to shift, and properties changes all the way up to 60 degrees. This shifting of the temperature of water from one state to another happens because of the 'crossover temperature, explained the scientists.
