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