  • Water
    • Cohesion
      • hydrogen bond formed between water molecules, stick together
      • drawn up xylem vessels in plants
    • High Specific Heat
      • a lot of energy is needed to raise the temperature
        • hydrogen bonds between water molecules stop movement
    • High Latent Heat
      • a lot of energy needed to change from liquid to vapor state.
    • Density
      • solid (ice) less dense so floats and forms an insulating layer
