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.
