What do you think? Thanks!
Quote from: The Scientist on 20/02/2011 03:05:11What do you think? Thanks!There are infinite. The reason is simple: mixing (miscible) liquids in different concentrations, you can get any value between the two liquids' boiling point. For example, if you want a liquid, different than water, which boils at 100°C, you only have to choose two miscible liquids which boiling pointa are, respectively, lower and greater than that of water, let's say n-buthilic alcohol (b.p. = 118°C) and ethilic alcohol (b.p. = 79°C) and you mix them in the appropriate percentages.If instead you intended two pure compounds, then it depends on the precision required in the b.p. value: the greater the precision, the less compunds you can find with the same b.p. values.
What makes you think so Bored Chemist? Care to share? thanks!
Guesswork - combinations (ie sums) of different isotopes or allotropes? Although ∑Cs is far too low to be carbon. Perhaps I should wait for BC to explain rather than guess
Of Course it is. Doh I was reading it as many Carbons (ie one C, many Cs). Caesium is pretty low mp/bp isnt it?
