The quote “ Water is Our Life Blood” is not a joke. Water is simply our life blood. Water is the most essential thing for every living thing that exist on this planet. And it is the most simple, and most common liquid on Earth . It covers about 71.4% of the Earth and water has no smell, taste, or color. Lakes , oceans, and rivers are made of water. However, some studies suggest that by 2025 more than half the people around the world will not have enough water. So we must protect our every water sources. Like I mentioned above, water is the most simple and common liquid that exist on this planet. But at the same time, water conceals many mysteries.Here are some cool, lesser known facts about water you must know. This post is followed by the post, Some Interesting Must Known Facts About Water. In a case you missed it you can read it from above.
- By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost over 1 percent of its total water amount.
- On 22 July 2011 a report described the discovery of a gigantic cloud of water vapor containing "140 trillion times more water than all of Earth's oceans combined" around a quasar located 12 billion light years from Earth.
- Water probably exists in abundance in Milky way another galaxies, too, because its components, hydrogen and oxygen, are among the most abundant elements in the universe.
- There is ice on the poles of the moon , and on the poles of Mars and Mercury.
- Water is the second most common molecule in the universe . The most common is hydrogen gas, H2.
- Did you know that if we fit the entire world’s water into a 4 liter jug, the fresh water available for us would be only about one tablespoon.
- There are about 1.5 billion cubic kilometers of water on Earth that’s 1.5 billion trillion liters, or 800 trillion Olympic swimming pools.
- We all know that a human body constitutes about 60% and 70% water. But did you know that this keeps changing at different times of your life. A human fetus constitutes around 95% water for the first months, getting to 77% water at birth and 60-70% water in adults. There is 42 liters of water in a 70kg person.
- Even bones are watery. Yes, as a matter of fact the bones are watery and contain 31% water. The skin is 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79% water and guess what 70% of the human brain is also water. Two thirds of entire water in our body is within our cells.
- Don’t be stunned! We all know the problem of water shortage so how do you come up with clean drinking water? Easy get the water from poop. Yes! I mean human feces. Bill Gates wants to convert your poop into clean and hygienic drinking water, and he’s got just the machine to do it- the Omniprocessor.
- Hot water freezes faster than cold water which is known as the Mpemba Effect.
- Water should be a gas at room temperature all similar molecules, such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and ammonia (NH3), are gases. The stickiness of water molecules holds them together as a liquid.
- Did you ever wonder where all the water on earth came from? All the water on Earth arrived during a period called the Late Heavy Bombardment between 4.5bn and 3.8bn years ago in comets and asteroids. Though it’s a hypothetical event, we’d like to believe it.
- It has been found that there is a hot ocean under the ice crust of Enceladus- Saturn’s moon. Since a hydrothermal vent at the bottom of one of the Earth’s oceans is where life started on our planet, the astrobiologists think that Enceladus can be the best candidate to look for alien life.
- A quick one. water exists in how many stages? If you answer three liquid, gas, and solid you’d be wrong. Flabbergasted? There are at least 5 different stages of liquid water alone and 14 different phases of ice that scientists have found so far.
- Glassy water, not a glass of water is a strange stage of water. It turns out that at -38 °C even the purest super cooled water spontaneously turns into ice with a little audible “bang” no less. But if you continue to lower the temperature at about -120 °C something strange starts to happen: the water becomes ultraviscous, or thick like molasses. And below -135 °C, it becomes “glassy water,” a solid with no crystal structure. Remember “glassy water” not a glass of water.
- You can make instant Snow with Boiling Water. Snow is supposed to be freezing cold. So with boiling water? Confused? Well if you throw boiling water in to the air in subzero weather you’ll get instant snow. Interestingly, it only works with nothing less than boiling hot water.

- Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Macchiavelli once came up with a plan to use water to win a war , by diverting the river Arno. Da Vinci was obsessed with water; he drew its vortices endlessly. He also worked out a lot of the science of how it flows, well before the field of fluid dynamics was established.
- Hot water is heavier than cold water. Water at 0 degree Celsius is less dense than water at 4 degree Celsius.
- Water constitutes only 0.07% of the earth by mass or 0.4% of the earth by volume.
- The expiration date on water bottles is for the bottle, not the water.
- The Sun and other stars like it create the equivalent of 100 million times the water in the Amazon river every second.
- We each drink around 1 cubic meter (1000 liters) of water a year.
- It takes 150 liters of water to make one pint (568ml) of beer.
- A kilo of cotton enough for a shirt and a pair of jeans needs 10,000 liters of water to produce.
- Water has memory water molecules can remember most recently dissolved substance, although it lasts only for 50 femto seconds.
- Humans lose around 200 ~ 400 ml when we exhale it per day depending upon humidity and temperature that day.
- Blood is 92 percent water. The brain and muscles are 75 percent water and the bones are about 22 percent water.
- Also, a human can survive for a month or more without eating food, but only a week or so without drinking water.
- Drinking too much water too quickly can lead to water intoxication. Water intoxication occurs when water dilutes the sodium level in the bloodstream and causes an imbalance of water in the brain.
