Re: gas, does it say "heat cabbage salad to 100C"? (6,3)


I believe the answer is:

boyles law

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

're gas does it say heat cabbage' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'salad to 100c?' is the wordplay.
'salad' becomes 'slaw' (slaw is a kind of salad).
'to' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other) (I've seen this in other clues).
'b00c?' becomes 'boyle' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'slaw' put after 'boyle' is 'BOYLES LAW'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for boyles law that I've seen is " Scientific principle".)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
