Water and Carbohydrates

HideShow resource information


Water is a really good source for transport because it is solvent , substances are easily transported if they dissolvedWater being a liquid and a solvent makes one of the best sources of transport.

 Structure of water

  • oxygen&hydrogen have positive nucleus. 
  • hydrogen atoms share their electron with oxygen, oxygen still has four unshared outer electrons.
  • making Oxygen negatively charged and Hydrogen positively charged.  

  Water is very cohesive because it is dipolar, meaning it has both positively and negatively charged bits.
