Think You Knew How Water Boils? Turns Out, You Don’t!

While boiling water is perhaps the simplest process known to humans, turns out that we don’t understand it completely. Some scientific gaps in the process of boiling water leaves room for boosting efficiency of nuclear power plants by 20%.A study published in the journal Physical Review Letters sheds light on the dynamics of heat transfer while boiling water.
