Basic rules of chemistry also beg us to recognize that thresholds such as evaporating, melting and freezing, and sublimation also depend on STP or lack thereof. In addition, sublimation is an effect of ionization as aforementioned, which can be altered by the simple action of light, ie. sunlight.JP Michael wrote:Water ice readily sublimates in certain conditions. That much is, actually, correct. Whether it applies to the highly ionised environment of rocky cometary bodies is another question entirely.neilwilkes wrote: Really?
Can I ask you one question - what temperature do you think water ice melts at?
