Problem 16RQ

Why will water at the bottom of a geyser not boil when it is at 100°C?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Water at the bottom of the container is under great pressure and will not boil until 0 temperature above 100 C are reached.when t5he boiling begins, the pressure is released, causing the water to boil very rapidly.The pressure on the bottom of the geyser is greater than atmospheric pressure because of the overlying column of water in the geyser ,so the 0 temperature in the base can rise above 100 C
