What happens when you decrease the pressure around a liquid? It boils. Water boils at room temperature once the pressure is low enough. What is interesting is that this decreases the temperature of the liquid. The fastest molecules escape, leaving the slower ones behind.
31 October 2012 James Mitchell Crow Nitrogen will form an unusual cage-like structure when subjected to high pressures, an international team of researchers has calculated. The structure, if confirmed by experimental studies, would be the first stable cage-like material in an element heavier than carbon. What’s more, it would be amongst the most energy-dense materials […]
