A beer bottle will melt at around 1832 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1000 degrees Celsius. Beer bottles, like glass jars and most other commercial glass containers, are made from soda-lime glass, which melts at around half the temperature of sand.Continue Reading
Soda-lime glass is a combination of 60-75 percent silica sand (silicon dioxide, SiO2), 12-15 percent soda ash (sodium carbonate, Na2CO3) and 5-12 percent limestone or dolomite (calcium carbonate, CaCO3). Small quantities of other materials are also added for specific purposes, such as color.
Whereas soda gives the glass its comparatively low melting point, which makes it well-suited to recycling, it also lowers its durability. Meanwhile, lime acts as a stabilizer to increase the hardness and durability.Learn more about States of Matter
Ice begins to melt when its surroundings rise above its freezing point, that being 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius). Depending on the salt content and the presence of other substances, that freezing point may be an even lower temperature.Full Answer >
The boiling point of distilled water is 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The boiling point of water can be higher or lower depending on several factors.Full Answer >
The freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -88 degrees Celsius or -126.4 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezing point of a liquid solution is the point at which it turns into a solid.Full Answer >
The boiling point of hexane is 69 degrees Celsius, or 156.2 degrees Fahrenheit. The boiling point for hexane, as with all longer hydrocarbon chains, is higher than that of molecules with smaller chains, such as those of methane and ethane.Full Answer >
