"...One of the three most familiar states of matter (in addition to solids and gases), liquids are relatively rare in the rest of the known universe but can be found in many forms on Earth. 'Liquid Matter' discusses the most important characteristics and properties of several important liquids, including water, blood, and oil. Liquid and gases are both classified in a larger group of substances called fluids, and a discussion of the ways in which fluids have proven to be a cornerstone of human development is included. This book also illustrates the impact of liquids on relevant societal issues, such as the harnessing of water for use in sanitation systems and the ongoing struggle of delivering clean water to poorer areas of the world."--P. [4] of cover.
