Q:

How cold is liquid propane?

A:

Quick Answer

The temperature of liquid propane is lower than minus 44 degrees Fahrenheit. If propane in liquid propane reaches minus 44 degrees Fahrenheit, it boils and transitions from a liquid into a vaporous state.

Full Answer

Propane is typically stored and transported in a liquid form. It is compressed inside a container and is released by a valve which allows it to vaporize. When it is in gas form, propane is odorless and tends to settle in low areas. Propane that is used commercially and in homes have an additional ingredient added that gives the gas an odor and allows leaks to be detected.

  • Q:

    How does gas become a liquid?

    A:

    The process of a gas changing to a liquid is called condensation, and for condensation to take place, the environment has to reach maximum vapor pressure, generally through a lowering of temperature in the case of the water cycle. Because pressure varies inversely with temperature, as temperature decreases, pressure goes up, causing the gas molecules to move with progressively less kinetic energy. Eventually, liquid vapor and droplets form, and the gas begins to condense.

    What is the boiling temperature of water?

    A:

    At sea level, the boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit, which is equivalent to 100 degrees Celsius. However, as with any liquid, water’s boiling point fluctuates slightly due to changes in altitude.
