Under Certain Conditions It's Just
Right For a Nice Bath.
Water is a fluid simply because its
particles, which may be compared to
an aggregation of infinitesimal pearls,
are kept separated by latent heat.
Outside heat applied to a vessel con
taining water causes the latent and
applied heat both to act on the air con
tained in the water Under such con
ditions pine water at sea level will
boil at a tempeiature of 212 degrees
if the barometer pressure be thirty
If however the vessel containing
this same water be carried to the top
of a high mountain or put under the
exhausted lecener of an air pump it
will boil befoie it reaches the tempera
ture of 212. because the atmosphere
ha? been taken away so as to allow
the air contained the water to es
cape before it becomes sufficiently
heated to impart that quality to the
loose particles of water surrounding it
At a height of 18,000 feet on the sides
of the Himalaya mountains water boils
at a temperature of 180 degrees and
under the exhausted receiver of the
air pump at only 72 degrees.
This proves that boiling water is not
always equally hot It also tells us
why it is next to impossible to cook
meat, vegetables, etc., in high altitudes
by the boiling process.London Satur
day Review.
