Obviously, this is the crux of your misunderstanding, James.

Poor Dumb Sam:
He doesn't seem to understand the concept of partial pressure.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Many are confused by this, not me.

Jim Peninno:
You mean the entire world has been confused for hundreds of years until you
alone received a blinding flash of insight?

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
How many times have you responded with this kind of political and
scientifically non-substantive banter?

Jim Peninno:
Yes. He doesn't seem to understand the concept of partial pressure, where
the different gases in a mixture behave independently of each other. So
water is perfectly happy to be a gas at 20 C as long as its partial pressure
is less than 0.34 psi. If you try to increase the partial pressure of water
vapor above that. it will condense into liquid. Similarly, in a partial
vacuum, the boiling point of water at 0.34 psi is 20 C, not 100 C. The
boiling point of a liquid is when the partial pressure of the liquid (when
it's a gas) equals the total pressure.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
You appear to be using the concept of partial pressure interchangeably with
the concept of vapor pressure. But I'm not a mind reader. I can't figure
out your point. Sorry.

Jim Peninno:
If you didn't find the above, coherent, then I would suggest you start with
remedial English courses and a good dictionary.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Well, then maybe you could explain how 0.34 PSI is relevant. Because I can't
figure it out.

Jim Peninno:
That is because you are a raving kook in dire need of the help of a mental
health professional and also illustrates you have the further delusion that
the subject of water and it's phases.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Why come to a discussion group if you are unable to discuss?

Jim Peninno:
I'm here mostly for the k00kwatching, not to prove anything

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Don't get mad at me,

Jim Peninno:
The only one getting mad is you because your delusions are being challenged,
everyone else is laughing.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Do you think if you actually had a dispute you wouldn't be so frustrated?

Jim Peninno:
Science isn't a dispute and what in the world would I be frustrated over as
your nonsense is quite comical.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
So, your mad because I don't believe what you believe?

Jim Peninno:
The only one mad is you because your delusions are being challenged with
facts, everyone else is laughing at your nonsense.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Hmm. Well, it's hard for me to picture you laughing right now.

Jim Peninno:
You don't understand what the term boiling point means.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Hmm. Maybe you can explain it to us. You can start by explaining what the
word "point" means to you. If nothing else I'm sure your response will be
very entertaining.

Jim Peninno:
Sure, I would be glad to enlighten you as to the definition of boiling
point.

The boiling point of a substance is the temperature at which the vapor
pressure of the liquid equals the pressure surrounding the liquid and the
liquid changes into a vapor.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
I don't see the words gas or gaseous in your definition.

Jim Peninno:
In physics, the word "vapor" means the same thing as "gas"; you are
displaying your lack of physics knowledge.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Really? In physics? Tell me more.

Jim Peninno:
It is a result of being eductated and able to read a physics text.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
You also haven't provided any specific examples.

Jim Peninno:
If one understands the physics no specific example is required.

James McGinn of Solving Tornadoes:
Well, alrighty then . . .

Thank you for your participation.

The reason he doesn't have a argument or even a point is because he is

This is the world we live in, folks. The sad truth is that science is dictated

system. Education should never be used as an excuse not to think--never.

Church ladies have no problem martyring their own intellectual reputation in
order to maintain the sanctity of their dimwitted beliefs. Look at Ed. Do you really think he is dumb enough to believe that Dalton's Law is applicable to H2O Vapor (H2O[l]? Of course not (Chan too). Dalton's Law is just his way to obscure the issue so that his sense of certainty is restored.

Facts are irrelevant to true believers.

I think the reason science gave up trying to make this distinction is because of the plethora of nitwits who are intellectually incapable of maintaining a distinction that they can't see.

there isn't any difference, since the latter only depends
upon hte presence of some liquid surface;
it's just part of what makes-up the partial pressure of water,
on a planet covered ~three quarters by water.

you are just a snotty man. myself, I have no degree, but
I do have dyscoveries in geometry -- which is a quarter
of *mathematica* -- for which I am certainly famous, iff
you take a breather from your trolling to investigate.

it is quite plain, that you have not bothered to learn any
of the elements of ideal gas theory -- may be nothing else,
either, although your English is just fine.

all that you have to do, is to show that
tempreature of boiling is strictly dependent upon airpressure,
hence altitude and partial pressure of the liquid in air.

tons of g00d texts will do that, if you can read,
and not type for a while

if you can prefine your terms a little,
you will be able to do it, then

the different gases in a mixture behave independently of each other. So
water is perfectly happy to be a gas at 20 C as long as its partial pressure
is less than 0.34 psi. If you try to increase the partial pressure of water
vapor above that. it will condense into liquid. Similarly, in a partial
vacuum, the boiling point of water at 0.34 psi is 20 C, not 100 C. The
boiling point of a liquid is when the partial pressure of the liquid (when
it's a gas) equals the total pressure.
You appear to be using the concept of partial pressure interchangeably with
the concept of vapor pressure. But I'm not a mind reader. I can't figure
out your point. Sorry.
If you didn't find the above, coherent, then I would suggest you start with
remedial English courses and a good dictionary.
Well, then maybe you could explain how 0.34 PSI is relevant. Because I can't
figure it out.
That is because you are a raving kook in dire need of the help of a mental
health professional and also illustrates you have the further delusion that
the subject of water and it's phases.
Why come to a discussion group if you are unable to discuss?
I'm here mostly for the k00kwatching, not to prove anything
Don't get mad at me,
The only one getting mad is you because your delusions are being challenged,
everyone else is laughing.
Do you think if you actually had a dispute you wouldn't be so frustrated?
Science isn't a dispute and what in the world would I be frustrated over as
your nonsense is quite comical.
So, your mad because I don't believe what you believe?
The only one mad is you because your delusions are being challenged with
facts, everyone else is laughing at your nonsense.
Hmm. Well, it's hard for me to picture you laughing right now.
You don't understand what the term boiling point means.
Hmm. Maybe you can explain it to us. You can start by explaining what the
word "point" means to you. If nothing else I'm sure your response will be
very entertaining.
Sure, I would be glad to enlighten you as to the definition of boiling
point.
The boiling point of a substance is the temperature at which the vapor
pressure of the liquid equals the pressure surrounding the liquid and the
liquid changes into a vapor.
I don't see the words gas or gaseous in your definition.
In physics, the word "vapor" means the same thing as "gas"; you are
displaying your lack of physics knowledge.
Really? In physics? Tell me more.
It is a result of being eductated and able to read a physics text.
You also haven't provided any specific examples.
If one understands the physics no specific example is required.
Well, alrighty then . . .
Thank you for your participation.
