Do this one lol it's a quiz that gives you a phrase, you have to choose if it's a heavy metal lyric or a bible verse.

These lyrics are as shitty as the bible verses.

Quite the accomplishment.

RE: PEW Science Quiz
12/12

Smartass

Edit:
The CSM one I did worse on.

45/50. I screwed up a couple that I haven't though of since college applied physics.

14 of 16. Bible sure is gloom and doom.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Ummmm...........no. No

Am I wrong? I apologize for spreading incorrect information if that is so.

That is how it has been explained to me, so please do educate me if I have wrong info. Thumbsup

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Ahh, I see my mistake. It's water vapor that is being transferred, not dissolved air. My bad. Facepalm

Yeah, that was one part of it. The act of going from a liquid to a gas is a phase change and this requires energy. The temperature that this occurs at basically depends on the pressure of the atmosphere and the vapor pressure of the liquid in question (although other colligative properties contribute). The energy required is called the enthalpy of vaporization. A simple way of thinking about this is if there are more particles of air (in the atmosphere) above a sample of water, it is harder to push a water molecule into it (i.e. more energy) because it has to push through more air. The less air, the less pushing it takes. This is of course a simple way to see it but it is the basic idea, there are more factors at play.

Thank you. I hate being wrong, but I'd rather be corrected than ignorant.
