hot water can also be a pollutant .. explain.

Hot water can be pollution because if somebody dumps hot water into a body of water, the hot water can kill organisms living there.

 

Answer:

Hot water (thermal pollution) impacts the receiving water in several ways the alter the environment and ecosystem:

 

  • A sudden burst of hot water can kill aquatic organisms by thermal shock. Fish have to adjust to new temperatures slowly.
  • Continued hot water can raise the receiving water's general temperature. This in turn reduces the oxygen levels so that only more hardy species can live there (carp not trout), encourages the growth of plant life, and impacts breeding success rates of aquatic organisms
  • Warmer streams encourage birds to over winter, potentially leading to bird kills die to lack of food
  • Warmer water can leach out metals and organics from the stream bed



Hope it helps!

the water from from power plant and industries are released into the river . it raises the temperature of the water body adversely affecting the animals and plants living in it

hot water also can be apollutant because from power plants and industries.It is released into the rivers.It raises the temperature of the water body and ultimately it affects plants and animals living in it.

Hot water can be an pollutant because when it is released into the river the temperature raises so the aquatic animals can die.

HOT WATER CAN BE A POLLUTANT BECAUSE IT CAN CONTAIN SOME DANGEROUS BACTERIAS THAT CAN ALSO SURVIVE IN HIGH TEMPERATURE.

 Thermal pollution can occur when water is used as a coolant near a power or industrial plant and then is returned to the aquatic environment at a higher temperature than it was originally. Thermal pollution can lead to a decrease in the dissolved oxygen level in the water while also increasing the biological demand of aquatic organisms for oxygen.
