I'm new here, so I thought I would double check. I've just asked the question How to explain why the statement “Cavitation is boiling,” in an answer is not really correct. Obviously the question does not have a numerical answer, my problem is how to understand and eventually explain why cavitation and boiling are not the same thing in the context of engineering.
I've made an attempt to understand the difference in this answer but I have asked here because I have a hunch there are people here who understand these phenomenon better than I do.
Can my question here be considered on-topic as written?
