Homework Help: Fluid Pressure

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    Here's the question:

    If the pressure of a substance is increased during a boiling process, will the temperature also increase or will it remain constant?

    It seems like it would increase because boiling is basically the release of pressure to create equilibrium. Is this right?

    Thanks a lot.
