  1. Water, H2O, is composed of 3 atoms which are covalently bonded
  2. Water is a polar molecule, which means it has an overall dipole as a result of opposing charges
  3. According to water's neighbouring molecules in the Periodic Table of Elements, ice should melt somewhere around -1000*C, but actually melts at 0*C
  4. n almost all other materials, the solid is denser than the liquid

Water may seem like a very simple molecule, but in fact it has many anomalies. These make it hard to predict the properties of water. This essay will explain just a few of its unusual properties.
