non example

Post by Elise » Tue Sep 11, 2007 4:15 am

I am hoping that some of you smart people can help me. I am trying to help my daughter with her biology homework. The teacher is asking for non-examples of adhesion, cohesion, density, solvent and solute. These are all talking about water. I can't for the life of me figure out what they are asking for. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance.

What's a non-example?
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

A quick bit of Googling suggests that non-examples are simply whatever an example is not.

I think they're just trying to distinguish the thing the teacher is asking from stuff he/she is not.

Confining these words to a watery context makes this doubly hard. I had a load of bizarre (maybe even amusing!) examples etc. lined up but then I read the water part. Toot.
