Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of a life-bearing planet's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.

Description / Specifications[edit]

Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that its molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms, that are connected by covalent bonds. Water strictly refers to the liquid state of that substance, that prevails at standard ambient temperature and pressure; but it often refers also to its solid state (ice) or its gaseous state (steam or water vapor). It also occurs in nature as snow, glaciers, ice packs and icebergs, clouds, fog, dew, aquifers, and atmospheric humidity.
