Problem 11Q

When you heat water on a stove, bubbles form on the bottom of the pot before the water boils. What are these bubbles? Why do they form?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution:

Heating of  water on a stove, forms bubbles on the bottom of the pot before the water boils.

The bubbles form because of two reasons:

1. Because of already dissolved gases in water. As water is heated, because of agitation these dissolved gaseous molecules rise up and escape.

2. Because of non-uniform heating. If we heat water using a utensil which supplies heat only from bottom, the water attains an upward-decreasing temperature profile. Which means the water at the bottom is at a higher temperature. This leads 'water at the bottom' to reach boiling point faster than the rest of the water and hence it evaporates early and we can see bubbles in the bottom.
