exists and is an alternate of .

The boiling point of a liquid is the temperature where the vapor pressure is equal to the atmospheric pressure. Vapor pressure increases with temperature, as you heat the water up the vapor pressure keeps increasing until it matches the atmospheric pressure, then it is boiling. Space isn't quite a perfect vacuum, so the boiling point wouldn't be 0, but it would be very very low.

Can water boil in space?

//////////////////////////////////////////BAD ANSWER////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Hmmm... That's actually a deceptively tough question. Good one tho

Boiling point of tap water?

100 degrees celsius. It heats up like normal water. 212 degrees Fahrenheit - there is a point or two difference depending on mineral content and elevation.

Normal boiling point of water?

    100 °C or 212 °F at normal room pressure   /  

Why does water have a boiling point?

Water has a boiling point, because, that is the temperature where it gets so hot, it turns to gas. Water can either be a liquid, gas or a solid. People want to known the tempe

Why will the boiling point of water lower?

If the equilibrium is altered such that the gaseous form is favoured, then the boiling point will be lower as more water molecules will want to evaporate. One way to do this
