I believe that I contributed to the WP article. However, I have completely rewritten, reformatted and revised it before porting here to CZ. Milton Beychok 13:26, 2 September 2008 (CDT)


I did not see the following edits which I made at about 17.30 UTC. Now I suddenly see them, note the times! --Paul Wormer 17:57, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


The article states: fluid pressure increases above the atmospheric pressure. Can one say increases above? I would have written increases to a level above.--Paul Wormer 16:32, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Paul, I changed the wording to read "becomes higher than the atmospheric pressure as the depth increases". Thanks for your comment and thanks for changing to . Milton Beychok 18:59, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


Would methylchloride not be a better example? The normal boiling point of propane is off the graph. (I hope the timer does not screw up this comment)--Paul Wormer 17:42, 7 April 2009 (UTC) PS It took more half an hour before I saw it. And Milt the clock on your talk page says 9:14, while it is 12:05 (CA time) -Paul Wormer 18:05, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I made the change to methyl chloride as you suggested. Milton Beychok 18:55, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
