Water

I was wondering in class today- is water always a liquid in equations? Can it ever be aqueous? If not, why not?

Re: Water

Water can either be a liquid, solid, or gas. Any substance that has been dissolved in water is said to be in an aqueous state (remember that aqua means water). For water to be in an aqueous state is in itself, a contradiction.

Re: Water

No, water cannot be aqueous since an aqueous solution is dissolved in water. That is why it is referred to as liquid.

Re: Water

In a couple examples, we've seen water as a gas, such as the reaction of CO(g) + H2O(g) <-> CO2(g) + H2(g). In this case, its pressure would be included in our expression for K or Q.

Re: Water

aqueous means something mixed with water so water cannot be aqeueous

Re: Water

An aqueous solution is a mixture of something with water, therefore water can be referred to as a solid, liquid, or gas, but cannot be considered aqueous.

Re: Water

A liquid cannot be aqueous, but it can be a solid, liquid, and gas.

Re: Water

There are some cases where water can be a gas or a solid, but it will not be considered aqueous because it cannot be mixed with more water since it already is water.

Re: Water

Water can be a solid, liquid, or gas. However, it cannot be an aqueous solution.

Re: Water

Like others have said above, water can either be a solid, liquid or gas. However, it will never be aqueous since an aqueous solution is, by definition, one where the solvent is water. Water cannot be dissolved in itself (it cannot be both the solvent and the solute).

Re: Water

When will water become a gas or solid?

Re: Water

it becomes a gas or solid if it is vaporized or frozen
