Explain why scientists use the formula H2O areound the world for water rather than water all around the world?
"water" is not a formula. It is also not a word that exists in all languages.
H2O tells the reader in any language what the compound is made of.
true water isnt a formula.ya i think she just meant like why they call water H2O. but im pretty sure u know that already :)
Scientific language is universal; if you say H2O to another scientist - he/she will know exactly what you are talking about. They may or may not understand the word "water". The same goes for other disciplines. For example, two botanists from different countries, speaking different languages, will understand that the talk is about the WHITE OAK if it is referred to by its scientific name of QUERCUS ALBA.
