The boiling point is what it is. What you can do however is to increase or decrese the pressure, which will change the boiling point.

if you increase the pressure, the boiling point (temperature) will also increase.

When pressure increase the temperature at the boiling point increase and conversely.

Adding sugar to boiling water it will increase the boiling temperature very slightly

It doesn't actually raise its temperature, it just raises its boiling point. Therefore you can heat it to a greater temperature without it boiling or evaporating. increase, decrease

A definition of boiling point is when the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the ambient atmospheric pressure, thusly if you increase the pressure the vapor pressure must also increase and to do this you have to increase the temperature. Shinolaman

It is inverse: the boiling point increase when pressure increase.

The answer depends on increase the boiling point of WHAT!

Liquids increase in volume with increased temperature, up to the vaporization point (boiling point).

The boiling point of a liquid is the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the atmospheric pressure, or the pressure above the liquid. So, to increase the boiling point without adding a solute, one can increase the pressure above the liquid.

The addition of salt does not change water temperature. It does, however, lower the freezing point and increase the boiling point.

That depends on the temperature of the boiling point:- An Iceberg has a greater temperature than the boiling point of Nitrogen. An Iceberg has a lesser temperature than the boiling point of Lead.

nothing happens to the temperature,but if you put the water under pressure the boiling point will greatly increase

Boiling point of a material is the temperature at which vapour pressure equals external pressure. As external pressure increases, vapour pressure increases boiling point increases

Yes, most nonvolatile solutes such as sugar or glycerin will increase water's boiling point.

Solutes increase the boiling point.

Glass beads cause water to boil at a higher temperature. This statement is incorrect. Glass beads will not increase the boiling point of water. Only dissolved particles will increase the boiling point, as determined by the colligative properties of water.

The soup reached the boiling point.OrWhat is a boiling point temperature?

The temperature. A liquid will increase in temperature until it reaches the boiling point temperature. At this temperature the liquid will become a gas. Under normal circumstances, the liquid cannot get any hotter than the boiling point without becoming a gas. So the liquid remains the same temperature until it has all boiled away.

When there is an increase in altitude, the pressure for the boiling point is lower. A decrease in pressure causes a lowering of the boiling point.

It can be either, depending on the temperature and pressure. Boiling point is -161.6 °C, or -259 °F, so below this it is a liquid at normal atmospheric pressure. Increase the pressure though, and you will increase the boiling point.

An increase in altitue leads to a lower pressure which results in a lower boiling point.

The easiest way to increase the boiling point of water is to boil it inside a pressure cooker. Adding salt will also increase the boiling point, but only slightly.

salt lowers the boiling temperature of water, causing water with salt in it to boil sooner- The above answer is incorrect. Adding salt to water will increase the boiling point of water, causing water with salt in it to take longer to boil.
