Investigation WATER PROPERTIES PROBLEM: How can I demonstrate the properties of cohesion, adhesion and surface tension? INFORMATION: Water or H2O is a molecule with unique properties. These properties are created by the polarity of each individual water molecule OR by the fact that water acts like a magnet. This magnetic or attractive force causes water molecules to stick to each other or to other things creating the following water properties: Adhesion- water will stick to other things Cohesion- water will stick to itself (other water) Surface tension- water molecules sticking to each other will make a surface that can support small amounts of weight MATERIALS Pennies Cups PROCEDURE: Forks Paperclips Dropper Your job today is to design 3 labs that will test the 3 properties of water above. You have a basket of materials to share that will let you test these properties. You need to write up the procedure for each test and the results. We will work on a conclusion tomorrow.
