Published on

Teaching science at home isn't impossible. A little creative and adventurous spirit will help any parent help their student through even the scariest of science classes and labs. Remember, science is playing around with things to find out what happens.

  15. 15. Boiling Point Boiling Point, temperature at which the vapor pressure of a liquid slightly exceeds the pressure of the atmosphere above the liquid. At temperatures below the boiling point (b.p.), evaporation takes place only from the surface of the liquid; during boiling, vapor forms within the body of the liquid; and as the vapor bubbles rise through the liquid, they cause the turbulence and seething associated with boiling. If the liquid is a single substance or an azeotropic solution (a mixture that has a constant b.p.), it will continue to boil as heat is added without any rise in temperature; that is, boiling occurs at constant temperature regardless of the amount of heat applied to the liquid. When the pressure on a liquid is increased, the b.p. goes up. Water at 1 atmosphere pressure (760 torr, or about 14.7 lb/sq in) boils at 100° C (212° F), but when the pressure is 218 atmospheres (165,000 torr, or 3200 lb/sq in), the b.p. reaches its maximum, 374° C (705° F). Above this temperature (the critical temperature of water), liquid water is identical to saturated steam.
