Blow Dryer in Vacuum
Name: Brandon M.
How would a blow dryer work in a vacuum?
Would it blow air particles and would they continue to move indefinitely while retaining

The motor would spin and the heating coil would heat; but there is no air to move.
Eventually, since there is no air to cool it, the device will melt.
