Answer

Water is unique in various ways: 1.Water expands upon freezing, which is because ice is less dense and floats on water. 2.Water has low molar mass and is liquid at room temperature. 3.The water molecule is bent and highly polar in nature, so it has a dipole moment. 4.Because of the presence of the hydrogen bond between the oxygen atom and the hydrogen atom, water has a relatively high boiling point.
