Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Lance on Wednesday, January 24, 2007 at 12:13pm.

non-volatile means a liquid that won't evaporate at all. It's not a commomly encountered term because there is usually some evaporation (especially as heat is applied). The usual phrase is "very low volatility". Oil at room temperature or colder fits this category.

How can I define non-volatile? (Besides saying it's the opposite of volatile)


Thanks
