Problem 38E

A snow-making machine used for ski areas blows a mixture of compressed air and water through a nozzle. The temperature of the mixture may initially be well above the freezing temperature of water, yet crystals of snow are formed as the mixture is ejected from the nozzle. Explain how this happens.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer: Step 1: Due to decrease in pressure the air expands rapidly,hence the water cools rapidly, which produces the snow crystals.

Step 2 of 1
