Who Discovered Water? Of course there is no answer for that question, as we can never say that water was discovered, because water was on earth before human. But we can answer several questions about water; Who discovered the components of water? Who discovered the importance of water? Who discovered the power of water? Who discovered the components of water? Water is a tasteless and odorless compound containing one atom of oxygen and two atoms of hydrogen.
Henry Cavendish (1731 – 1810), a British chemist and physicist was making researches about hydrogen and he reached to the idea that when hydrogen and oxygen gases decrease, water is produced. Then Antoine Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794), the French chemist and biologist. He was able to split water molecules using copper and he also was able to produce water by combining hydrogen with oxygen.
Who discovered the importance of water? Water is necessary for all living organisms not only human. Water is a very important factor in the process of photosynthesis, James van Helmont (1579-1644) was the first to discover the importance of water in the photosynthesis process.
Who discovered the water power? The water power or water energy is the energy or power generated from water. The most common use of the water energy are the water wheel and water turbines. The water wheel is used to convert the power of water in useful forms of energy as in grinding grains. The Greeks and Romans were the first to use the water wheels. The water turbine was used first by the Romans. The water energy can be used to produce the electricity by connecting a generator to the water turbine, from the water running down from the falls, the tides.
