If you boiled some ice in a hot frying pan, would it become a gas or a liquid?


Answer

Both. It melts and becomes a liquid. Then the liquid gets hot and evaporates into a vapor, which is a gas!

Technically you can't "boil" a solid. You can melt a solid and then boil the liquid, or (under the right conditions) you can sublime a solid.

If this was in "Trick", that would have been my answer.

i thought it was something more interesting than that...maybe the ice would sublime (go from solid to gas w/o changing to liquid first)
but it was the overly simple answer that was right...

But that's not boiling the ice! That's melting the ice and then boiling the liquid.
