Which properties of water best explains why organisms resist temperature changes, although they give off heat during biochemical reactions? A. Density B. Surface Tension C. Capillary Action D. Specific Heat
What is Moderation of Temperature by Water
Water can absorb a large amount of heat without much change in temperature because it has a high surface tension. heat capacity. hydrogen ion (H+) concentration. hydroxide ion (OH–) concentration.
