here's my question: since I am an engineer, these questions raise up automatically to me:
1. How do you make water boil at under 100'C? Easy, Put water in a vacuum
2. The reverse, how do you make water boil at a higher temperature? Easy put it under pressure
-Once water is under a concealed space under pressure, the water molecules will need more heat energy to turn into steam.
3. So my third question is, why would putting a diamond under extreme amounts of pressure help melt it?
4. Yes they make diamond in laps, they are called industrial diamond usually used in the engineering world as cutting diamond. Now, to make these
diamond, we put Carbon under extreme pressure and then apply heat to create diamond
-Once again, how would putting diamond under extreme pressure help it melt?
