Textbook Problem

The boiling point of the coolant in an engines cooling system is raised by the

  1. thermostat

  • pressure cap
  • radiator
  • water pump
  • To determine

    What raises the boiling point of a coolant in an engine’s cooling system?

    Explanation

    The cooling system in an internal combustion engine is used to dissipate excessive heat from the engine to maintain a constant internal temperature inside the engine cylinder. It uses a coolant to circulate it from parts of the engine to remove excessive heat.

    Due to excessive heat, the coolant needs to be kept at a pressure higher than the atmospheric pressure, which raises its boiling point. Thus, to maintain this pressure a pressure cap is fitted into the radiator...
