What shape is water?

Do we define what the shape of something is by the shape of the container from which we access it?

I am not sure I have ever consumed water from a square container – though I am sure that there are plenty of tanks that are square and held water.  What I mean is that I dont have a square cup, or a square bottle – and anything closely square has bevelled corners and is thus, by definition, not a square.

I had to google, “What shape is water?”  and was presented with lots of answers that answered a different question – namely “What color is water?”

But amidst the answers to wrong questions, was an answer to the question I asked.

What shape is water?

Spherical.  A water molecule is a perfect sphere.  Thus, like most life sustaining things, water has curves.  Water is curvy.  Water has a curve.
