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.

What is the boiling point of distilled water?

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

Boiling points water and methane?

The boiling point of water is 100 0C at 760 mm col. Hg. The boiling point of methane is -164 0C.

What is the boiling point of water in Celsius?

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

What is the melting and boiling point of water?

  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

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.

What does a solute do to the boiling point of water?

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
