100 degrees mate.

100 degrees Celsius is the boiling point for pure water at 1atm or sea level. The boiling point is useful in identifying chemical compounds. Chemical compounds have different boiling points that are specific to it' s chemical composition. If you know what the boiling point or melting point is you can also tell if your compound is pure, as any impurities will change these.

Importance of boiling point?

Knowing the boiling point of a substance provides information to determine what the substance is if its unknown. If you are making a substance, checking the boiling point will let you know if you have made what you set out to make, (because impurities can mess up the boiling point)

When you change the amount of a substance the time it takes to reach the boiling point then what happens?

The lower the amount of substance, the faster it reaches the boiling point. The more the amount of substance, the longer it takes to reach the boiling point. Hope that this is what you wanted to know! :)

Why are the boiling and freezing points of a substance useful to know?

I dont know, go look in your science book

If you know the melting point of a pure substance what does it tell you about its boiling and freezing point?

The melting point and freezing point are the same. The boiling point will be higher depending on the element or compound. You can look up these temperatures in the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.

How could you use the physical properties of melting point and boiling point to identify a substance?

If you know the melting point and boiling point of a substance, you could look them up in a table to see what substances have those melting and boiling points. In practice, there are lots of other tests you'd probably want to do in addition, because in general there's no guarantee that an unknown substance is a single pure compound.

What is the boiling and freezing point of degrees Celsius?

You didn't say of what substance you want to know about. I will assume that you are talking about water. The boiling and freezing point of water are 100 degrees and 0 degrees, respectively.

How can physical properties be used to identify substances?

Every substance has certain properties that show things about them, such as odor, taste, malleability, hardness, color, state at room temperature, and melting/boiling point. If you know the color of a substance, it is far easier to determine what that substance is, and if you know the color and the boiling point, your choices are limited even further. Using the physical properties of a substance, you can identify the substance based off of its unique properties or combinations of properties.

What are the advantantages for knowing the melting point and boiling point and the freezing point of a substance?

these are pycical compounds so naturally when you use them we know what is in them so it is easier to use and we can go further into an experiment

How does the liquid know the pressure of the atmosphere?

The boiling point of an element or a substance is the temperature at which the Vapor_pressureof the liquid equals the environmental pressure surrounding the liquid.if we close the container and change the pressure outside the container.. the boiling point will change... why?? how will the solution inside know that the pressure outside the container is changing and it has to now change its boiling point.??

How can information about the melting point and boiling point of matter help you know its state?

If the temperature is below the melting point, you know it is in the solid state. If the temperature is below the boiling point, and above the melting point, you know it is a liquid. If the temperature is above the boiling point, you know it is a gas, etc. (Note: melting point is the same as freezing point).

What is the boiling point and freezing point of nitrogen?

I don't know the freezing point, but the melting point is 63(k) while the boiling point is 77(k). (:

What is the boiling point for salt?

Can the boiling point of a substance be changed?

We know the boiling point of a substance can be changed by changing the pressure on it. Higher pressures increase the B.P. and lower pressures decrease the B.P. One example is a still that desalinates water. By heating the water a bit and decreasing the pressure as much as we can, we can get the water to boil at much less than its normal boiling point. That allows us to get the job done (run the still to desalinate water) with less energy.

Why do you need to know the freezing point or boiling point of a substance?

It is used so ypu can accurately use the substance. What would a substance be if it freezed or boiled on you when you didn't need or want it to? For example, some foods cannot freeze or boil or they will go bad. For that purpose minimum and maximum temperatures are listed.

How does a a substance's melting point tell you what state it will be at room temperature?

To know what state a substance will be in at room temperature, you need to know its melting point and its boiling point. If room temperature is lower than the melting point, it will be a solid. If room temp. is between the melting point and the boiling point, it will be a liquid. If room temp. is higher than the boiling point, it will be a gas. The boiling point is always higher than the melting point, although they may be very close together. So, for water, the melting point is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius), and the boiling point is 212 degrees Fahrenheit (100 degrees Celsius). Room temperature is around 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) which is between the melting and boiling points, so water is a liquid at room temperature.

What is the boiling point of juice?

the boiling point of orange juice is 890 i know this because i did a lot of research on this that you should do too instead of taking my answer you should research and find out the boiling point of juice is 890

How does a substance's boiling point or melting point determine its state at room temperature?

Room temperature of a substance is 25 degree Celsius, so say for instance: Substance melting point boiling point State (rtp) A (solid state) 83 degree (liquid state) 342 degree (gaseous) Solid So substance A is solid at room temperature, we come to know this that as 25 degree or the room temperature does not lie b/w the mp and the bp so it is not a liquid state, and it does not come after the boiling point either so it's not a gas at room temperature, thus it's a solid. Hope it helped! :)

What is the boiling point of creek water?

The boiling point of water, if it is pure, is 100 degrees Celsius at standard temperature and pressure. Since there is no way of knowing the purity of creek water unless it is analyzed, there is no way to know its boiling point. However, the more impure it is, the higher the boiling point.

How do you get the boiling point?

well basically you just get water at boil it when you see steam you know you have reached the boiling pointbecause the boiling point is just the temperature at which the liquid turns into gas bubbles =)
