Chapter 10 Boiling and Condensation Chapter 10 BOILING AND CONDENSATION Boiling Heat Transfer 10-1C Boiling is the liquid-to-vapor phase change process that occurs at a solid-liquid interface when the surface is heated above the saturation temperature of the liquid. The formation and rise of the bubbles and the liquid entrainment coupled with the large amount of heat absorbed during liquid-vapor phase change at essentially constant temperature are responsible for the very high heat transfer coefficients associated with nucleate boiling. 10-2C Yes. Otherwise we can create energy by alternately vaporizing and condensing a substance. 10-3C Both boiling and evaporation are liquid-to-vapor phase change processes, but evaporation occurs at the liquid-vapor interface when the vapor pressure is less than the saturation pressure of the liquid at a given temperature, and it involves no bubble formation or bubble motion. Boiling, on the other hand, occurs at the solid-liquid interface when a liquid is brought into contact with a surface maintained at a
