What is the boiling point of water in space?
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.

212 degrees Fahrenheit!
pure water, 100 degrees centigrade or 212 degrees fahrenheit.
The boiling point of distilled water seems to be 100 degrees celcius, based on the previous web sites I have seen. Tap water has more minerals, so it has a higher boiling poin…t- 101 degrees Celsius. Salt water does not have a specific boiling point because the temp. is based on how mush salt there is. more salt=higher temp. I hope this helped because I am doing a paper on this and I have to know my stuff!
The boiling point of water is 100 0C at 760 mm col. Hg. The boiling point of methane is -164 0C.
The boiling point of pure water is 100 0C at 760 mm col. Hg. ((101.325 kPa of atmospheric pressure). This is not a coincidence. The Celsius scale was originally defined around… the boiling and freezing points of water. Boiling point is 100 degrees and freezing point is 0 degrees Celsius.
At atmospheric pressure (1013 mbar) is 100.65 °C
Water, in the form of ice, melts (same as freezing point) at 0 degrees centigrade (or 32 degrees Fahrenheit); in the form of steam, it boils at 100 degrees centigrade (2…12 degrees Fahrenheit). These numbers are standardized numbers, and are actually estimates, as they are dependent on atmospheric pressure affected by altitude, and certain other factors.
//////////////////////////////////////////BAD ANSWER////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Hmmm... That's actually a deceptively tough question. Good one tho…ugh. Water boils because enough heat is introduced to break the water into hydrogen and oxygen rapidly. That definitely could happen in space (not likely in outer space as it would be difficult to maintain a heat source) but the bubbles would not go up, they would just cause pressure to build in the container that was used to heat the water which would probably generate very very intense heat. Might end badly for the astronauts, and it wouldn't look like traditional boiling water, but it would boil. ///////////////////////////////////////Real Answer////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// I must respectively disagree with the comment above. Yes, Water (or any fluid for that matter) will instantly boil very violently in space as there is no atmospheric pressure. Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius at 1 ATM (atmosphere) Because then it has enough energy to break past the atmospheric pressure (which is 760 mm-Hg) thus turning into a gas. Place water in a vacuum, and you can lower the boiling point to a room temperature, because in a vacuum the pressure is significantly lower. Thus less energy needed to break free. So as we know in space, there is no pressure and water requires no energy to overcome the pressure (as there is none) and will boil very rapidly, then as a gas will run into deposition, turning into millions of little ice crystals because of the low temperature.
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.
It increases the boiling point of water. (under the condition that the solute is non-volatile so it doesn't contribute to the total vapor pressure). This comes from an equati…on that states that the extent of poiling-point elevation is proportional to the molal concentration (the amount of solute divided by the mass of the solvent) of the solution. porviding the solution is ideal and diluted. source: chemistry student
