Means that water sticks to itself. As water evaporates from leaves, they pull the lower molecules up.
Water sticks to other materials. Explains why water moves up a glass tube by capillary action.

It takes more energy to heat up water than any other material. Why the dry sand gets hotter than wet sand.
A bond that shares electrons
The negatively charged side of water.
The positively charged part of water
When water rises against the force of gravity due to adhesion
