  Point (geometry) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Points are used in the basic language of geometry, physics, vector graphics (both 2d and 3d), and many other fields.
Euclid's axioms or postulates assert in some cases that points exist: for example, they assert that if two lines on a plane are not parallel, there is exactly one point that lies on both of them.
The description of a point is quite similar to the description of a spatial vector, which also can exist in space with dimensions from one to many.

When heat is applied to a liquid, the temperature of the liquid rises until the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the pressure of the surrounding gases.
At this point there is no further rise in temperature, and the additional heat energy supplied is absorbed as latent heat of vaporization to transform the liquid into gas.
The boiling point of a solution is always higher than that of the pure solvent; this boiling-point elevation is one of the colligative properties common to all solutions.
