Does protostars become stars?
Sometimes. If the total mass is high enough, and if the cloud of dust and gas collapse to reach a high enough density and pressure, nuclear fusion can begin in the core and it will become a star. If the total mass is not high enough, it may collapse into a "brown dwarf". ...

The vapor pressure of CO2 is lower than the vapor pressure of water?
No, the vapor pressure of CO2 would be higher. Think of it like this, if you compress the molecules in gas enough, they will be close enough together to form a liquid. Both CO2 and water can exist as liquids and gas. At atmospheric pressure (14.7psi) or normal everyday pressure, water is a liquid and CO2 is a gas. This means that 14.7psi is not enough pressure to compress CO2 into the liquid state. Therefore, CO2 has a higher vapor pressure...

Can nitrogen become a solid?
Yes; any gas can become a liquid, or even a solid, if it is subjected to a sufficiently low temperature, and a sufficiently high pressure. How much pressure and temperature depends on the specific gas, of course.

What will happen to most liquids when the temperature is increased?
They will become less viscous.

What condition is needed for a solid to change into gas?
For a solid to change into a gas, the conditions needed are high enough heat and low enough air pressure. ...
Asked in Chemistry
What will happen when we start putting pressure and compress a gas enclosed in a cylinder and do you think increase and decrease in pressure can change the state of matter?
At high pressure the gas become a liquid.
When does gas turn to liquid?
A gas turns into a liquid when 1) Either its temperature is high enough (above the melting point of the gas) 2) Or the pressure is high enough, temperature being lower than the melting point of the gas But the 2nd option will work only for Temperatures less than the critical temperature of the gas. Once that temperature is crossed, no amount of pressure can turn the gas into liquid ...

Does a solution under high pressure or low pressure have more gas in it?
A solution under high pressure will have more gas dissolved into it.

What happens to Ideal Gas Law at High Pressure and High Temperature?
At high temperature and pressure the volume of a particular gas will increase ...
Asked in Chemistry
What will happen if the Gas is kept at low temperature and high pressure?
At low temperature and high pressure, the VOLUME of the gas will be reduced. ...
Asked in Chemistry
What happens to a gas when it is compressed under low pressure?
Compression by definition is raising the pressure in order to lower the volume. It would be pretty impossible to compress a gas using low pressure. Of course, low pressure is relative, and it depends on how far you want to compress it. Eventually, the pressure will be high enough that the gas will form a liquid. ...
Asked in Planetary Science
How could there be a planet entirely of gas?
There probably couldn't, though if an astrophysicist wants to correct this feel free. The problem is that gas molecules have high velocities. If the mass of the body is high enough to have an escape velocity higher than the gas molecules at its surface, then the pressure in the interior is probably high enough to compress the gas into a liquid or supercritical fluid state. ...

How does pressure change the state of a substance?
Increase in pressure decreases the distance between the particles of a gas allowing interparticular forces to become large enough to liquify the substance. ...
What part of refrigeration system changes the low pressure side to the high pressure side?
The compressor changes the low pressure gas into a high pressure gas which then has the heat of compression removed in the condensor to turn it into a high pressure liquid. ...
Does refrigerant exit the compressor as a high temperature high pressure liquid?
No , a high temperature high pressure ( gas )

Why doesn't the gas present in the universe liquify though the universe is expanding?
Because there is no pressure being placed on the gas, the molecules do not become condensed enough to form a liquid. ...

What conditions cause deviations from the ideal gas?
High pressure, and low temperature. High pressure, and low temperature. High pressure, and low temperature. High pressure, and low temperature. ...
When the temperature of a gas increases does the volume of the gas increase in a rigid steel container?
No, because the gas is in a rigid steel container, its volume cannot increase as the temperature increases (assuming the steel does not deform). Instead, the pressure of the gas inside the container will increase. Of course, if the pressure is high enough, the container will explode, lowering the pressure and causing the gas to expand. ...
Does something under high pressure want to stay at high pressure or go to something that is low pressure?
A gas or fluid will always move from a high to a low pressure if it can
