(Uncountable) A chemical, found at room temperature and pressure as a clear liquid, having the formula Hâ‚‚O, required by all forms of life on Earth. From a linguistic point of view it can be argued that Hâ‚‚O exists in three states; water is one of them and is by definition liquid. Frozen water is called ice (though there are other frozen compounds known as ice they are given specific descriptions; e.g. dry ice refers to frozen carbon dioxide.) Ice alone refers to frozen water. Water vapor has various names, none of which is water. One can request a glass of water and not expect to receive a glass of ice or container of water vapor.
