Water Physical Properties & Weight Control

The following article is provide good general knowledge about water.

You see "Water has a very high surface tension. In other words, water is sticky and elastic, and tends to clump together in drops rather than spread out in a thin film. Surface tension is responsible for capillary action, which allows water (and its dissolved substances) to move through the roots of plants and through the tiny blood vessels in our bodies."


That is the reason you can understand, why those weight loss institute.. or supplement, used the diet pills to discharge water out of the body is wrong. No wonder, there are report that, people died after taking slimming pills. They could have die of dehydration. Also not enough water to discharge the waste out of the body.

So for your great health, drink 8 big glass of Water & must be filtered water a day.

Water's Physical Properties

* Water is unique in that it is the only natural substance that is found in all three states -- liquid, solid (ice), and gas (steam) -- at the temperatures normally found on Earth. Earth's water is constantly interacting, changing, and in movement.

* Water freezes at 32o Fahrenheit (F) and boils at 212o F (at sea level, but 186.4� at 14,000 feet). In fact, water's freezing and boiling points are the baseline with which temperature is measured: 0o on the Celsius scale is water's freezing point, and 100o is water's boiling point. Water is unusual in that the solid form, ice, is less dense than the liquid form, which is why ice floats.

* Water has a high specific heat index. This means that water can absorb a lot of heat before it begins to get hot. This is why water is valuable to industries and in your car's radiator as a coolant. The high specific heat index of water also helps regulate the rate at which air changes temperature, which is why the temperature change between seasons is gradual rather than sudden, especially near the oceans.

* Water has a very high surface tension. In other words, water is sticky and elastic, and tends to clump together in drops rather than spread out in a thin film. Surface tension is responsible for capillary action, which allows water (and its dissolved substances) to move through the roots of plants and through the tiny blood vessels in our bodies.

* Here's a quick rundown of some of water's properties:
o Weight: 62.416 pounds per cubic foot at 32�F
o Weight: 61.998 pounds per cubic foot at 100�F
o Weight: 8.33 pounds/gallon, 0.036 pounds/cubic inch
o Density: 1 gram per cubic centimeter (cc) at 39.2�F, 0.95865 gram per cc at 212�F

By the way:
1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 128 ounces = 231 cubic inches
1 liter = 0.2642 gallons = 1.0568 quart = 61.02 cubic inches
1 million gallons = 3.069 acre-feet = 133,685.64 cubic feet

Good comments. But, I do not agree with most of them. People sure have a lot of time on their hands. Ms.
