The Current State of Water Pollution
One of the most differentiating factors of the planet Earth is the abundant presence of water. The Earth is almost 75% water. The substantial amount of water on the planet allows the vast and diverse biotic population to thrive. Without water, none of the life on the planet would be living, Earth would look less green and blue, and more dry like Venus or Mars. However, one of the most prominent environmental epidemics is the pollution of the Earth’s water bodies. According to the WWF, water pollution is characterized by “toxic substances” entering water bodies, and then “getting dissolved in them, lying suspended in the water or depositing on the bed

many people who live in countries that are denied access to water because they can’t pay for it.
Water has been viewed as a commodity in countries such as the US and it is an industry that has
been capitalized therefore the prices have increased. Corporations often increase water rates for
capital gain, making it more inaccessible to destitute populations. Contrarily, it is a scarce

Effects of salt on the surface tension of water
What is surface tension? Surface tension is a phenomenon in which the surface of a liquid acts like a thin elastic sheet when it comes in contact with an external force, such as a gas like the air. This physical property allows the surface of a liquid to “resist” the pressure of the external force by reducing its interaction with the force.
What causes this layer to form upon water? atoms that make up water molecules are always at an unequal charge distribution causing a push and pull effect on their shared electrons. Oxygen has a stronger attraction to the shared electrons when compared to hydrogen. Thus, the

Water scarcity is now one of the most key environmental issues that we need to solve. The water supply from nature is not exhaustible and water is always in great demand. Therefore, this report will point out some causes and show two solutions to deal with the lack of water: seawater desalination; government rules and regulations.
The first reason leading to the shortage of water is climate change. A precipitation is not enough water for people to irrigate or even being enough, it still does not satisfy water after long-time drought

When the water in our rivers, lakes, and oceans becomes polluted it can endanger
wildlife, make our drinking water unsafe, and threaten the waters where we swim and

A nutrient is any food substance that is necessary for contributing to an organism's growth and metabolism. There are 6 nutrient groups, classified as those that provide energy and others that support metabolic processes in our body. Some of these are very important because they cannot be produced in the body and have to be taken from a food source. Nutrition is the taking in and use of nourishing materials by the body. Different organisms have different ways to take in nutrients, like plants taking nutrients through photosynthesis and the use of their roots. Nutrition is also a science that focuses and studies the relationship between diet, health and disease. For example, deficiencies and

Transpiration is the process that allows plants to release H20 in the form of water vapor into the atmosphere. This process mostly occurs during the time the stomata, the microscopic pores on the surface of a leaf, are open for the passage of CO2 and O2. Transpiration plays a huge role for plants, as 90% of the water that enters the plant is through transpiration. It also allows the plant to receive key nutrients and minerals in order to survive. By transpiring, or evaporating, it causes the plant to suck up more water from its roots, causing a constant flow of water through the plant, which is optimal for survival. If transpiring were to terminate, then the plant would continue to

Water is an essential commodity for human existence. It is used for consumption, maintaining public health, agriculture, industry, and for transportation. Serious water scarcities will affect virtually every aspect of human life. Water resources are enormously skewed geographically, and many countries with lower water availability also have high rates of population growth. This will exacerbate their water shortage in the future.Many countries are also highly dependent on water that originates outside their borders. For a country, the threat of having its water supply severely constrained by another state may seem threatening, and may even lead to war. It is amongst the commodities that

) in the phloem vessels.The phloem transports substances using the pressure flow mechanism. This process requires cellular energy *(ATP). Sucrose is loaded into the phloem vessels against a concentration gradient by active transport using ATP. This increases the solute concentration in the phloem and as a result water moves into the phloem from the cells by osmosis. At the sugar sinks sucrose is removed from the phloem into the plant cells that require it. Water follows the sucrose from the phloem into the cells by osmosis.At one point of the phloem (sugar source) there is a large amount of solute concentration and a high water content. This exerts a high water (turgor) pressure or hydrostatic pressure. There is a low amount of solute, lower water content and a lower turgor pressure. Water flows along the phloem from the area of high hydrostatic pressure to the area of low hydrostatic pressure that is from source to sink.*The movement of sugars in plants*Adenosine triphosphate

The structure of the membrane allows materials to move across it by 2 main means: active and passive transport. Password transport involves two processes: Diffusion and Osmosis. Passive transport allows some substances such gases and water to move into and out of the cell without using energy. Active transport includes processes such as "ion pumps", "exocytosis" and "phagocytosis". Molecules such as sucrose's are moved against their concentration gradient using active transport - this requires the use of energy. A concentration gradient exists whenever two

Many plants and animals rely on certain weather conditions to thrive, and global warming has resulted in the loss of many crops and animals. Most crops, such as wheat, corn, and soy have what's known as an “optimal growth temperature”, meaning that they thrive under a certain temperature range. When the temperatures exceeds or fails to meet these temperatures for extended period of time, mass crop death can result.

Molar Mass of a Volatile Liquid
Introduction: Given the mass of vapor at conditions of known pressure volume, and temperature, one should be able to determine the molar mass of the vapor. Mathematically, The Ideal Gas Law relates the quantities of pressure (P in atm), volume (V in liters), temperature (T in Kelvin), and quantity of gas (n in moles). Using the expression PV = nRT, where R is the ideal gas constant (0.0821 L atm/mole K), one can determine the quantity of gas under given conditions of pressure, volume, and temperature.

Semi permeable membranes are cells, which only take in a limited amount of a liquid. The water passes from a region of high to a region of low concentration, until the two are equal in concentrations of water.If a cell is placed in water or a dilute solution than the cell will take in the water and it will swell up. It will increase in size and not burst as this is due to the fact that the cell walls are made from cellulose, which is extremely strong. After a
