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.

//////////////////////////////////////////BAD ANSWER////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Hmmm... That's actually a deceptively tough question. Good one thou…gh. 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.
i am of a beleaf that it somewere about the 110oc mark
pure water, 100 degrees centigrade or 212 degrees fahrenheit.
100 Â°C or 212 Â°F at normal room pressure .
212 degrees F
It is 212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Celsius. It refers to the temperature water boils at sea level.
100 degree C.
Water boils at 212 o F which is 100 o C at standard pressure 100 kPa
You put a pot on the stove, and put a thermometer in it. Then you start to heat it, and wait till you see a steady boil. Then read the thermometer.
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…ratures so they can know how hot, or cold, it needs to be to turn into something else. Cooks certainly want to know water's boiling point, when making something with boiling water, such as tea or coffee.
The boiling point of water is 100 0 C at 760 mm col. Hg. The boiling point of methane is -164 0 C.
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… is to lower pressure. If you decrease the pressure on a container of water, there will be less air pressure at the surface of the solution, and more water molecules will spontaneously have sufficient energy to vaporise into gas. At high altitudes, such as atop the Himalayas, the boiling point of water approaches 90 degrees, 10 degrees lower than at sea level, for this very reason.
The boiling point of water depends upon the elevation above sealevel. At sea level, water boils at 100 degrees C. The boilingpoint decreases as altitude increases. The boiling… pint in a desertwould depend upon the elevation of that particular location in adesert.
100 degrees celcius
