Hello, Im stuck on a question. I can come up with ideas but tying them together gets me stuck. Plus word problems always confuse me greatly. OK: At the top of a mountain, an egg is heated in boiling water for 4 minutes and is found to be uncooked. Explain. What I know is: On the mountain the atmospheric pressure is lower. This lower pressure results in increased volume. If the volume is greater, the water takes longer to boil... so the temperature isnt as high. Is that why the egg isnt cooked??? Due to these conditions it would take longer than 4 minutes to cook the egg. Is that even remotely correct or am I way off. PLEASE HELP!!!!
