1. Boiling
Takes place at fixed temperature.
Takes place throughout the liquid.
It is lowered by decreasing the atmospheric pressure.

2. Evaporation:
Takes place at all temperatures.
Takes place on the surface of the liquid.
It is increased by decreasing the atmospheric pressure.

b).-Having a double wall.
-Having a cork made of an insulator.
-Having a vacuum between the double walls.
c).i) Q =ML_V = 50/1000 X 2.26 X 10^6 =113000J
ii) Q= MCϴ = (50)/(1000) X 4200 X 100 = 21000J.
iii).Heat lost by steam = Heat gained by the melting ice.\
ML_V + MCϴ = ML_f
113000 + 21000 = M X 334000
134000 =334000M
M= 0.4012Kg.
