Why can't we manufacture water? by Josh Clark NEXT PAGE . Waterfall Image ... This leads us to wonder: If we need it so badly, why can't we jus­t make it? ­Water is made of two hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom. This seems like pretty basic chemistry, so why don't we just smash them together and solve the world­'s water ills? ...

Although earth is majorly covered by water (water covers 71% of the surface of Earth), but out of that water 97% of water is held by oceans which is saline i.e undrinkable. The remaining 3% is also not so readily available. Indeed, water is scarce. So why can’t we just make water chemically in laboratories? We know the formula, right?

Scientists have discovered a new way to make water. Not only can they make water from unlikely starting materials, such as alcohols, their work could also lead to better catalysts and less ...

Can man reproduce water? Question Date: 2004-04-13: Answer 1: It is, in fact, possible to combine hydrogen and oxygen to make water, but it's a little tricky. Oxygen is usually present as O 2 (two oxygen atoms bonded together), so in order to make water (H 2 O) the two oxygen atoms in O 2 must break apart, and that takes extra energy.

Well, in the simplest terms that I can understand, which means you have to dumb down to my level, Sunshine, is that; ‘Water is made of two hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom. This seems like pretty basic chemistry, so why don’t we just smash them together and solve the world­’s water ills?

There's water around us all the time, we just can't see it. The air in our atmosphere contains a varying amount of water vapor, depending on the weather. When it's hot and humid, evaporated water can make up as much as 6 percent of the air we breathe. On cold, dry days it can be as low as .07 ...

Video show how to set up a cool demonstration for exothermic reactions or stochiometry. A bottle is filled with water, then the water is displaced with 1/3 oxygen and 2/3 hydrogen.

So, we can make water from hydrogen and oxygen—and in small quantities, chemists and educators often do make it. It's just not practical to use the method on a large scale because of the risks and because it's much more expensive to purify hydrogen and oxygen to feed the reaction than it is to make water using other methods, purify ...
