Definition of solidification:
During the solidification of this fluid, which is commonly conjectured to have been gaseous and primordially heated to a very high temperature, an enormous quantity of latent heat must have been liberated.- "COSMOS: A Sketch of the Physical Description of the Universe, Vol. 1", Alexander von Humboldt.
Like many other difficulties in this world, the solidification of the Chat Moss was said to be impossible, but the great engineer scarce admitted the propriety of allowing the word" impossible" to cumber our dictionaries.- "The Iron Horse", R.M. Ballantyne.
When this is done, the fibrin- the part of the blood that causes solidification- adheres to the twigs, and the blood that remains, though it is unchanged in appearance, will remain liquid for an indefinite time.- "The Red Thumb Mark", R. Austin Freeman.
