WATER. That liquid substance of which the sea, the rivers, and creeks are composed.
     2. A pool of water, or a stream or water course, is considered as part of the land, hence a pool of twenty acres, would pass by the grant of twenty acres of land, without mentioning the water. 2 Bl. Com. 18; 2 N. H. Rep. 255; 1, Wend. R. 255; 5 Paige, R. 141; 2 N. H. Rep. 371; 2 Brownl. 142; 5 Cowen, R. 216; 5 Conn. R. 497; 1 Wend. R. 237. A mere grant of water passes only a fishery. Co. Lit. 4 b.
     3. Like land, water is distinguishable into different parts, as the sea, (q.v.) rivers, (q.v.) docks, (q.v.) canals, (q.v.) ponds, q v.) and sewers, (q.v.) and to these may be added at water course. (q.v.) Vide 4 Mason, R. 397 River; Water course.

Body water homeostasis is tightly controlled by regulating both water intake and urinary water excretion.
Cold hardiness strategies of insects have generally been divided into two major categories: freeze tolerance insects tolerate the formation of extra-cellular ice within the body, whereas freeze avoidance insects cannot tolerate the formation of ice within their bodily fluid by depressing the temperature at which the spontaneous freezing of body water occurs (Zachariassen, 1985; Denlinger and Lee, 2010).
"We're looking forward to introducing InBody to a new audience that can benefit from our in-depth body water assessments."
Body composition was measured using a BCA (seca mBCA515, Germany) with the BIA method; the indices used included total AT, the visceral fat index (VFI), sclerotin, protein, skeletal muscle, total body water (TBW), intracellular water (ICW), and extracellular water (ECW).
The inclusion of the EBW as a second independent variable significantly improved the precision of the equations for predicting the empty body water and protein content (Equations 10 and 13), however, did not alter the predictive value for ash, fat and energy.
Basal metabolic rate (kcal), percentage body fat mass (BFM) (%), BFM (kg), fat-free mass (kg), visceral fat mass (%), total body water (kg), body water rate (%) and metabolic age (years) were taken as output from the device as a cumulative result.
No significant group x time interactions were noted for total body mass (p = 0.28, effect size = 0.11), total body water (p = 0.31, effect size = 0.11), lean mass (p = 0.55, effect size = 0.12), fat mass (p = 0.96, effect size = 0.10), RF CSA (p = 0.70, effect size = 0.10), and lower-body strength (p = 0.58, effect size = 0.13).
This test takes just a few minutes to analyze your body in five ways: Body Composition Analysis is the sum of your Body Fat Mass and Lean Body Mass, which is made up of Dry Lean Mass and Total Body Water. Obesity Analysis shows the percent of body fat compared to body weight.
Body composition analyzers comprise various instruments used to determine different parameters of body composition, including body fat %age (% fat), total body water, intra-cellular water, extra-cellular water, waist-to-hip ratio, fat mass, fat free mass, basal metabolic rate, bioelectrical impedance, land body weight, and body mass index.
The values of body weight, body mass index, basal metabolic rate, body fat percentage, fat-free mass and total body water measurements were recorded on the output of bioelectric impedance analysis device.
Highlighting the symptoms of the stroke, he said, in the first step the body water is lost through incessant perspiration which causes the internal body temperature shoot up to dangerous levels-and could go as high as 106F.
Two thirds of total body water is found inside our cells.
