The operation of boiling: the agitation of a liquor by heat, which throws it up in bubbles: or more properly, the agitation produced in a fluid by the escape of a portion of it, converted into an aeriform state by heat. In different liquids ebullition takes place at different temperatures; also, the temperature at which liquids boil in the open air varies with the degree of atmospheric pressure, being higher as that is increased and lower as it is diminished.

(F.) Bouillonnement. The motion of a liquid, by which it gives off bubbles of vapour, by heat or fermentation. The boiling point of liquids varies according to the pressure to which they are subjected. For the point of ebullition of different substances, see Heat. Ebullition is used in France, in a vague manner, for every kind of transient eruption of the skin, occurring without fever or with slight febrile attack.
