What would boiling water look like in space? Find out in this NASA article.
Description and diagram of boiling water reactor.
Uses kinetic theory to explain the boiling point of water and how it can vary.
Find out how adding salt to water affects the temperature at which it boils and why.
In this video, see how you can bring water to the boil using ice to reduce air pressure.
A simple description of what boiling points are, and how they vary according to pressure.
The boiling point is defined as the temperature at which the saturated vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the surrounding atmospheric pressure.
Can water remain liquid below its normal freezing point? If it does, that water is supercool (-ed). This project shows you a method for supercooling water.
A brief discussion (with a slightly disbelieving tone) of why hot water freezes faster than cold water. Links to a related section on the Mpemba Effect.
Information on heavy water, used for nuclear weapons. Heavy water, or D2O, is water in which both hydrogen atoms have been replaced with deuterium, the isotope of hydrogen containing one proton and ...
