It seems that the physics concept Hewitt is trying to show is simply that
'liquids cool by evaporation because the faster molecules leave the
surface.' That concept seems fundamentally sound.
We might like to add a few caveats about surface tension, energy
distribution, and equilibrium. But isn't it basically true that if such a
strange liquid existed, it wouldn't cool by evaporation?
