Given that a diver is able to cut through water in a swimming pool. This happens due to the special properties of water. As water is in the liquid state it posses few characteristics.
Property of matter observed
A diver is able to cut through water in a swimming pool. The property observed in this phenomena are listed below
- This shows that the particles of matter have spaces between them.
- The interparticle forces of attraction between liquid particles are not very strong hence the force applied by the diver is enough to overcome these forces of attraction.
- A diver will be able to pass through water if there is availability of space between the particles and the forces of attraction between the liquid particles are not very strong.
- The diver will not be able to cut through solid ice because of fewer spaces between the solid particles and strong forces of attraction.
