Don’t make this mistake! When a liquid evaporates or boils to become a gas, the molecules DON’T come apart! This is true whether you’re talking about evaporation, boiling, or vaporization.

  1. I came here for Evap vs Boil…. But all i got was Evap/Boil vs Fission.
    Why not explain partial pressure vs vapor pressure vs temp…. This is something Most people actually don't understand.

  2. I'm still confused as to why any liquid evaporates without reaching its boiling temperature. Is just heat energy causing the molecules to move more rapidly and drift into the air?

  3. So why doesn't water boil when it evaporates? Like if you leave a bowl of water outside on a hot day, the water will all eventually evaporate, but it never seems to boil. How does this work if the way it turns to gas is by heating up so much that the molecules get a high enough level of kinetic energy to become a gas?

  4. Can you please explain why water freezes in a pressure chamber? For example water starts to boil at a much lower temperature under lower atmospheric pressure, yet it still leaves frozen ice?? Just a little confusing to me.

    Also, when water is boiled in a pressure chamber does the atmospheric pressure become higher due to the water turning from a liquid to a gas?

  5. So when I'm sweating, the liquid sweat evaporates and cools me off. How does this work? I understand that water can transfer heat very effectively, but why
