What if all of a sudden all the water in the world couldn't boil?
Answer from: Ludmila K.:
**If water can't boil**, in the language of physics this means that the heat capacity of water has become infinitely large. But water isn't just Pepsi-Cola. Water is both ice and steam, which means they will also have infinite heat capacity.
Our body temperature and internal organs will stop changing - seems like good news, but viruses will slowly eat us up, which is bad. How quickly humans and most animals will die, let the biologists:medics finish. Probably only protozoa will survive. Nature will change, too. Rivers and clouds will disappear, and ice will stop both melting and forming...
It's called the apocalypse in a nutshell.
- Why do you need to boil water?
- How long does it take for water to boil?
- How does the water in the pot boil faster with the lid open or closed?
- How can there be a sea in the middle of the ocean? Why salt water doesn't mix with fresh water?
- What happens to water if left in a bottle for billions of light years? It will not lose any of its properties? It will be drinkable?
