When boiling a liquid, how vapour pressure and ambient pressure get equal?
As vapour pressure will increase, it will lead to increase in ambient pressure also.
let, Initially there would be some ambient pressure acting on the liquid, in open vessel.
Now, when we start heating the liquid, temperature of liquid will rise, thus vaporisation of liquid will take place. The vapour will also exert pressure on liquid along with atmosphere. Thus, ambient pressure will become higher and so the boiling point will increase and liquid will not boil. This will go on and on, and liquid will never boil. Obviously, liquid will boil at some point of time.
Pls. tell where I am getting wrong.
