Q:

What is the boiling point of vinegar?

A:

The boiling point of regular household vinegar is around 213 degrees Fahrenheit. Vinegar that possesses a higher concentration of acetic acid will require a higher temperature to boil.

Although most types of vinegar boil around the same temperature ranges, the boiling points can differ depending on the amount of water present in the solution, and whether or not it is diluted with other liquids. Normal vinegar or household vinegar is typically a 4 to 6 percent solution of acetic acid that is mixed with water. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry name for acetic acid is ethanoic acid, and its boiling point is around 244 F.

    What happens in a condensation reaction?

    A:

    In a condensation reaction, two reactants react to form water or ammonia and one other byproduct. As long as either water or ammonia is formed and is the only byproduct, a reaction is considered a condensation reaction. A condensation reaction is not to be confused with the process called condensation, where water vapor turns to liquid after losing heat.

  • Q:

    Why do solids have definite shapes and volumes?

    A:

    Solids have definite shapes and volumes because their atoms and molecules are held together firmly by the strong inter-molecular forces. At low temperatures, the kinetic energy in the solid is usually not enough to overcome these intermolecular forces, so the solid remains in the same state.
