If you continued to heat a pot of water after it reached its boiling point what would happen?
Its temperature would stay at 100° C.
In the distillation of a pure substance why does all the water not vaporize at once when the boiling point is reached?
Liquids do not evaporate at the same rate. Every liquid has a different boiling point, and when that specific temperature is reached, the liquid will evaporate. For example, if two different liquids were in the same container, as the temperature was increasing, then the liquid with a lower boiling point would evaporate first, and the other liquid would remain a liquid until its own boiling point was reached.
Sure, if the temperature of the gas is lower than the evaporation point of the substance, the gas turns into liquid. If the temperature then reaches the freezing point, the liquid will turn into a solid. The effect can be also reversed. If the melting point is reached, the solid will turn to a liquid, then if the boiling point is reached, the liquid will turn into gas. You must be able to lower the…
