Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 26E Step 1: Bubble is nothing but vapour formed as a part of boiling. So, this will be a point like structure when it is formed at the bottom of the pot. Since it is having lower density than the liquid water, it will move from the bottom of the pot to the top. The pressure of the water column will decrease as we move up. So, the pressure on the bubble will decrease as it travels from bottom to top. As the pressure decreases, the...
