Rayleigh-Brillouin light scattering is studied in liquid water over the range from 249 to 365 K. Experiments are carried out with a high spectral resolution (0.1 GHz), eliminating any contribution of the structural relaxation to the elastic line. The Landau-Placzek ratio is found as the ratio of the Rayleigh and Brillouin intensities. In the whole temperature range, the Landau-Placzek ratio is found to be in good agreement with a prediction of the theory with a pair of independent thermodynamic variables, pressure and entropy. This description is usually used for single-component homogeneous liquids. An excess of the Landau-Placzek ratio above the prediction is expected for inhomogeneous liquids and is observed, for example, in glass-forming liquids below a certain temperature. In contrast to glass-forming liquids, no excess of elastically scattered light increasing at low temperatures is observed for the Landau-Placzek ratio of water. This suggests that the Landau-Placzek ratio of liquid water can be described by a homogeneous structure, and the idea of the water structure consisting of two structural motifs may not be necessary to explain the experimental ratio.
