  1. That’s a really interesting comment.

    Water is billions of years old but some water is being made every day.

    It is made when compounds containing hydrogen burn. Of course, when hydrogen burns, it makes water.
    hydrogen + oxygen = water

    When petrol buns it makes carbon dioxide and water When you see condensed water on a kitchen window on a cold day it could be because the gas in your cooker has burned to form water and carbon dioxide.

    Of course water might simply have condensed because some water has been boiling in a kettle or saucepan and it might have come from your breath.
    Water that has been ‘made’ by burning and other processes can last forever, although lots of water is used up during photosynthesis and formed during respiration.

    I wonder if you have drunk some water that was once drunk by William Shakespeare or some other famous person from history. Just imagine the journey that some water molecules might make through time (Phew!)
