In which pair(s) would boiling occur? (Each pair corresponds to one row of the table)

a. 760 {mm,Hg} 700 {mm, Hg}
b. 480 {torr} 480 {mm, Hg}
c. 1.20 {atm} 912 {mm, Hg}
d. 1020{mm,Hg} 760 {mm, Hg}
e. 740 {torr} 1.00 {atm}

    Aaron, I don't have the foggiest idea of what you are asking nor what the data shows.

  • Chemistry -

    I have to figure out which Atmospheric Pressure and Vapour Pressure pairs would cause boiling.

  • Chemistry -

    OK. Do you know the definition of boiling point? When the vapor pressure of the material is atmospheric pressure, the material will boil(is boiling). So
    atm = 760 and vp 700, no boiling.
    480 torr and 480 mm, boiling.
    etc.
    Don't forget to compare the same units.
