Enthalpy

Solution: Ethyl chloride (boiling point, 13 °C) is used as a local anesthetic. When the liquid is sprayed on the skin, it cools the skin enough to freeze and numb it. Explain the cooling effect of liquid ethyl

Problem

Ethyl chloride (boiling point, 13 °C) is used as a local anesthetic. When the liquid is sprayed on the skin, it cools the skin enough to freeze and numb it. Explain the cooling effect of liquid ethyl chloride.

Solution
  • Vaporization is the phase change from a liquid to a gas. It is an endothermic process where the energy is used to break the attraction of the molecules in the liquid state.
