When I start studying electrochemistry, I learn the words “molten” and “aqueous”. I don't have a problem for “aqueous”, but I'm a little bit confused about “molten”.
For me, “molten” means melt, which means to become liquid from solid. But why do we say molten lead(II) bromide instead of liquid lead(II) bromide?
I mean both are the same, but liquid is arguably easier to understand.
