A MOLECULAR VIEW OF YOUR GLASS OF WATER

Looking at a glass of water on a bedside table you may think to yourself, "ahhh, a little H2O before bed"—but there is a lot going on inside that glass! If you let the glass of water totally evaporate the cup would not be completely clean, so what is the stuff that is left behind? We will look at what is typically dissolved in water, what it means to be dissolved, molecularly speaking, and common reactions that are constantly taking place in our water.
