Chapter 3 Water and Life

Life evolved in the ocean, and the chemistry of life occurs in an aqueous environment. These questions explore the properties of water that are important to sustain life’s chemical processes, organismal physiology, and interactions of organisms with their environment. Quantitative properties such as heat content, molarity, andpH are also addressed. A few questions address how human activities affect the global environment through acid rain and acidification of the ocean.
