A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Water’.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary offers a detailed definition of the term. It states that water is “the liquid that descends from the clouds as rain, forms streams, lakes, and seas, and is a major constituent of all living matter and that when pure is an odourless, tasteless, very slightly compressible liquid oxide of hydrogen H2O which appears bluish in thick layers, freezes at 0° C and boils at 100° C, has a maximum density at 4° C and a high specific heat, is feebly ionized to hydrogen and hydroxyl ions, and is a poor conductor of electricity and a good solvent.”
This, of course, is a very scientific meaning! Water, in layman’s terms, is the liquid without which living beings cease to exist. It is, essentially, the elixir of life.
Water is also a renewable source of energy, considering it makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface.
