The boiling point of water is 100 degrees celsius. The water will evaporate at boiling point. By the way what do you mean "what happens to the temperature of boiling water" if you think about it, it does not make sense.

Nothing, the temperature of the boiling water will remain constant but the water will boil harder (produce more steam).

When you heat water, the first thing that happens is that the energy of the heat goes into the water which gets hotter and hotter until it reaches boiling point. At the boiling point the energy goes into making water vapor (steam) and the steam carries the energy away with it as the water boils away.

(If you seal the pot so that the steam can not get away then the water (and steam) will indeed get hotter and hotter and the pot will eventually explode).

### What is the temperature of Microwaved and boiled water?

With the microwaved water, it pretty much depends on the microwave Owens temperature. Though boiling water is 100 degrees Celsius. (I would like to add): The water's temperature depends how long the microwave runs and the power of the microwave. However, if the water is boiling in the microwave, it is the EXACT same temperature as water boiling on the stove. The microwave is just another method of boiling the water.
