Q:
How come water has no taste or color?
A:

The Dictionary defines water as “a clear, colorless, odorless, and tasteless liquid, H2O, essential for most plant and animal life.” The Encyclopedia goes on to say that “Life depends on water for virtually every process, its ability to dissolve many other substances being perhaps its most essential quality”. The reason why water has no color is because light passes through it relatively easy, like a window (although large bodies of water will start to take on color since the light has to travel farther and acts differently). The reason it has no taste is because water is a very simple molecule that is a basic building block of life — we’re over 80% water!
