The initial boiling point is the temperature whereby the first drop of distillate has appeared.

The 121 degree temperature is maintained by the pressure itself, if the pressure were to drop bellow 15psi then the boiling point of the water would drop, and the temperature would fall. The boiling point of water is affected by pressure, the more pressure the higher the boiling point, hence a higher temperature.

As the air pressure drops the boiling point of water (or any substance) will also drop. The higher your altitude the lower the air pressure.

methylated spirit is in fact methanol added to ethanol (usually 10% methanol is used). The liquid evaporates which means that the liquid converts to a gaseous state. This process requires energy which it extracts from your body in the form of heat. This same process cools you down when you sweat. The reason that spirits feel colder than say room temperature water is that the boiling point of alcohol is much lower than water(about 78 degrees C for ethanol and 100 degrees C for water). This means that at room temperature the partial pressure of ethanol is higher which means more of it is evaporating from your skin than water, requiring more energy(which makes your hand feel cold).

Well, the boiling point will drop as the pressure drops. So if you cool the alcohol while exposing it to a near vacuum you might get it to boil and freeze at the same time.

Several things: First, what are you trying to boil? Different solutions have different boiling points based on their chemical composition. If you mean water, you can drop the boiling point by adding solutes to the water (salt, sugar, etc). Also, the altitude at which you are trying to boil the water can affect it's boiling point (due to vapor pressure). But Billy is cooler than

No, It would only raise the boiling point higher and drop the freezing point lower.

Actually, as you rise in elevation in atmoshpere im assuming, the pressure decreases. This pressure drop will cause the boiling point of anything to rise, therefore requiring more energy to boil.

As air pressure drops over the water surface the boiling point will drop and vice versa. So a kettle of water will boil at a lower temperature at the top of a mountain than at sea level because there's lower air or atmospheric pressure at the mountain top. Pressure is proportional to boiling point

The boiling point of Butane is approximately -0.5 C at sea level (This boiling point will drop with an increase in altitude given the reduced pressure). This means that as the lighter nears freezing less gas will be vaporized inside of the lighter and will make it hard to light. SMO The boiling point of Butane is approximately -0.5 C at sea level (This boiling point will drop with an increase in altitude given the reduced pressure).

The compressor elevates the boiling point of the refrigerant to a point at which the air (or water) moves across the condenser is low enough to condense the refrigerant to a liquid. Additional passes in the condenser coil cool the liquid refrigerant below its boiling point to ensure it remains a liquid as it experiences pressure drop in its journey to the evaporator. This cooling below the boiling point is called sub cooling

The boiling point of water can vary based on elevation. More specifically it varies based on relative pressure. Air is a fluid just like water. Everyone knows that the deeper you go in the water, the higher the pressure, and the shallower you go, the less the pressure. Going higher up on a mountain is like going shallower in the water. The air pressure drops as you go up and so does the boiling point of water. This same concept is used by water distilling plants. A vacuum is drawn (a pressure less than atmospheric pressure of 14.7psia) on the region where the water is boiled and lowers the boiling point. Most will achieve a vacuum that allows the water to boil at 165F. The boiling point of water at sea level (14.7psia) is 212F. A change in elevation changes the atmospheric pressure which changes the boiling point. A drop in pressure lowers the boiling point and an increase in pressure raises the boiling point.

You drop the chicken into boiling water for a few seconds, and then drop it into freezing water.

Well as you go to a higher altitude the pressure would drop. You can boil water at a lower temperature at high altitude.

No basic Difference between melting point and Drop point.

The heat will flow from the boiling water to the block of ice.

Who told you that water can not exceed its boiling point? It happens every day! Every day someone heats a cup of water in the microwave. It reaches around 110 C or 230F. Then when they drop a teaspoon full of instant coffee into the cup, it boils all over the place. The superheated water is dropping down to its boiling point. Water can exceed its boiling point. Water can also exceed its boiling point in an enclosed pressurized container. One such machine was called "The steam locomotive." One item used on the cook stove was called "The Pressure Cooker." These heated water above the boiling point. However, under standard conditions, when water begins to boil its vapor pressure will equal the air pressure. Any attempt to make the water hotter would increase its vapor pressure. When water gives off vapor, that cools down the temperature of the water. So the air pressure determines boiling point.

No - compressed liquid is at a pressure above the boiling point pressure of the liquid. A saturated liquid is right at that boiling point. If you try to drop the pressure on a saturated liquid, it will begin to boil. If you start dropping the pressue on a compressed liquid, it will remail a stable liquid unit you have dropped it to the saturation pressure.

A drop point blade has a convex curve of the back, the opposite side of the cutting edge, towards the point.

It's best to put it in RIGHT BEFORE it's boiling. Time it out right so that when the water is just beginning to bubble, drop it in.

Each liquid has a different melting and boiling point. If you place ice (frozen water) into a glass of water, then the water's temperature can only drop to 32 degrees and it will begin to melt. If you drop ice (pure frozen water) into Sea Water(water with salt), then the Sea Water can drop below 32 degrees. So it will take longer for the ice to warm up enough to melt. It has to do with the freezing point of the liquid it is in.

Nothing happens when you put and egg into a pot of boiling water. That is how you make deviled eggs and your egg will not break unless dropped to hard!

A drop kick does not bring about a score. However, a drop goal is worth one point
