Yes, it is possible to have steam, liquid water, and ice exist in the same space, but not a molecule of water can only be in one of the three phases.

It takes energy to go from one state to another. Water ice, water vapor and liquid water can exist simultaneously, just as you can put an ice cube into boiling water and see the three phases coexist for at least a short time.

No, each one of the moon's phases appears on a different night.

No, because every three of four days, the moon's phases changes and sometimes you cannot see the moon every four weeks the same time.

In the cell cycle there are three phases that compose the interphase. The three are G1, S and G2. This is the phase where a cell spends most of its time.

The phases don't all actually happen at the same time, but because onion root cells are constantly going through mitosis you can see many different phases in a section of an onion root tip.

i think at a frozen lake !gas above the lake .liquid is the water. and then the solid is the frozen wateransw2. The triple point of water is the temperature at which water may exist in each of its three phases simultaneously. That temperature has been at the 273.16oK defined point for about the last 50 years. Or at 0.16oC.

They based it on phases of the moon and the hours by water clocks.

Yes they are. Everybody on earth who can see the moon at the same instant of timesees the same shape.

It is a pure substance (H2O) existing in two different phases as the same time. This is not considered a mixture.

The phases of the moon take the same amount of time as it's orbital period, and a small fudge factor due to earths own orbit. This results in the phases taking ~28 days to go full cycle. There are 8 phases in total, meaning each phase lasts about three and a half days.

Water molecules move back and forth between the liquid and gaseous phases all the time. This occurs through evaporation and condensation.

It is impossible for them to occur at the same time. They are two opposite phases of the same oscillation. It is either one or the other, or it is somewhere in between (neutral).

The same time as if there were nine."Time to get out of the water."

The phases of the Moon are the same to all observers on Earth, at a given time.

It would be about 29.5 earth days. Or, precisely the same length of time as a full cycle of moon phases.

Subtract the time periods of the stationary phases from the total trip time, then divide the remaining time by the distance.

... the substance can exist in the solid, liquid, and gaseous phases all at the same time.

Three babies born to the same mother at the same time are called triplets.

you use the moons movement and phases to tell time because of the seasons, rotation, and revolution

Chuck water and orange juice on it at the same time. Chuck water and orange juice on it at the same time.

On the earth, water can exist in the liquid, solid, and gas phases all at the same time. An example of this would be an iced-over pond, where the ice starts to break up, forming chunks of solid water (ice) floating in liquid water, with gaseous water (water vapor) in the atmosphere.

The amount of time that elapses between each of the four principal phases of the moon is 29.5 days. The phases are roughly equal to each other.

In a three phase power system, each phase is separated from the others by 120 degrees.

The moon takes the same time to rotate on its axis - as it does to orbit the Earth... 28 days.
