PostSubject: Totally Random Science Question   Mon May 26, 2008 2:54 pm

I was watching TV last night an the show said that due to the low pressure on Mars water would boil at fifty degrees (farenhieght). My question is, Would that water burn you? :scratch: On one hand the water is 50 degrees (indicating no), but on the other it is boiling water (indicating yes).

I have no clue which is right, so what do you guys think?

I don't think it would. Eventhough its bioling, it's still only 50 degrees.

If water boils at 50 then no it would not, its at 50. :bounce:

when water bubbles/boils.. it isnt always called boiling. For instence, when you blow though a straw in your drink, its not boiling... its just bubbling.

Boiling has something to do with the energy level between the molecules in the object (water isn't the only thing that boils). That energy level is reached at 50 degrees under Mars pressure. I understand what you are saying, not all things that are bubbling are boiling, but in this instance the water is boiling.
