Unformatted text preview: the temperature of the water decreased drastically while the pressure was held the same. The temperature decreased in a similar manner when the author placed his hands over the flask containing boiling water and ice on the flask containing boiling water. Thus, the H2O was transitioning from gas back to liquid as it cooled. When the solid carbon dioxide was placed in the pipet bulb under constant pressure, it began to sublime. This is because carbon dioxide is only solid at extremely low temperatures, so when it was introduced to room temperature it quickly sublimed. As time progressed, carbon dioxide gas built up in the pipet, raising the pressure, which eventually caused the pipet to burst. Analysis continued on following pages....
