How it Works

If ice be heated above 32° Fahrenheit, its molecules lose their

cohesion, and move freely round one another--the ice is turned into

water. Heat water above 212° Fahrenheit, and the molecules exhibit a

violent mutual repulsion, and, like dormant bees revived by spring

sunshine, separate and dart to and fro. If confined in an air-tight

vessel, the molecules have their flights curtailed, and beat more and

more violently against their prison walls, so that every square inch of

the vessel is subjected to a rising pressure.
