According to Elmhurst College, the molecules in a liquid are packed closely together and make random movements, as the molecules slip past each other. As the liquid is heated, the kinetic energy increases, which causes t... More » Science Physics Thermodynamics

According to the chemistry department of Elmhurst College, water boils because it has reached the temperature at which its molecules are moving fast enough for the water's vapor pressure to equal or exceed the atmosphere... More » Science Chemistry Atoms & Molecules

It takes five to 10 minutes to boil 6 to 8 cups of water. The water, pot and stove temperatures; the water's salinity; the pot's volume, surface area and conductivity; the altitude; and whether or not a lid is in place a... More »

Energy is required to boil a liquid in order to give the molecules enough energy to overcome intermolecular attraction forces. While boiling, the highest energy liquid molecules are able to escape the liquid and enter th... More »

Ice cubes melt as the molecules of air, water or other substances around the ice transfer heat into the molecules of the ice itself. As the temperature increases, the bonds change inside the ice, entering a liquid phase ... More »

If the term lukewarm is in reference to a liquid like milk or water for a recipe, then this temperature is anywhere between 98 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature also is comparable to combining one part of water... More »

To make liver pate, boil 3 cups of water, 1 pound of chicken liver and one sliced onion on low heat for 20 minutes, drain the liquid, and throw out the onions and pieces of liver that are still hard. Puree the liver, add... More » Food Cooking Meat
