æ Water ô Download by · John Finney Water Dominates The Surface Of Earth And Is Vital To Life On Our Planet It Is A Remarkable Liquid Which Shows Anomalous Behaviour In This Very Short Introduction John Finney Introduces The Science Of Water, And Explores How The Structure Of Water Molecules Gives Rise To Its Physical And Chemical Properties Considering Water In All Three Of Its States As Ice And Steam As Well As Liquid, Finney Explains The Great Importance Of An Understanding Of Its Structure And Behaviour To A Range Of Fields Including Chemistry, Astrophysics, And Earth And Environmental Sciences Finney Describes The Role Of Water In Biology, And Ends With A Discussion Of The Outstanding Controversies Concerning Water, And Some Of The Magical Properties Which Have Been Claimed For It Quite technical for a short introduction, but very interesting This is a mainly a book about chemistry biochemistry materials science aspects, not a book about e. g the history of research into the properties of Water so you need to want to read a book covering such topics in order to like this one. You probably also need to want to be willing to look stuff up while reading this book as not all concepts covered are covered in anywhere near the amount of detail they are often covered in books of this nature, but this aspect also allowed the author to cover the material in depth than he otherwise would have been able to do I think the author prioritized well Considering that it s only a very short introduction this is not a particularly easy book to read, but I really liked this one.
Most interesting. . I tried I really did but it s just too boring with the structures and stuff. have to quit
