Abstract

It is known that water has special characteristics that allow life to survive on Earth. Water not only contains organic and inorganic nutrients, but also has a strong ability to dissolve substances, which is vital for living beings. The present study comes up with the following question: What are the physical properties of water and how can these properties benefit the human body? In this sense, the present study aims to list the physical properties of water in order to understand the benefits of these properties for the human body. This research is a bibliographic research, composed as a descriptive study of quantitative character. As pointed out during the study, water has several very important physical properties that can be used for the practice of physical activities, among which we can highlight density, buoyancy, viscosity and others. It was possible to realize that aquatic exercises can greatly favor the human body, helping to gain muscle strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, etc.
