The boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit at one atmosphere of pressure or at sea level. However, at high altitudes, like on a mountain, water boils at a lower temperature. When atmospheric pressure increases, water boils at a higher temperature.
Human blood boils at approximately the same temperature as distilled water, 212 degrees Fahrenheit. This assumes that the liquid, either blood or water, is at 1 atmosphere of pressure. Any decrease in barometric pressure lowers a fluid's boiling point.
Oils used in food preparation have a range of boiling points, from about 375 F to about 510 F. The boiling point of oil depends upon the specific type of oil that is being heated as well as its specific purity. Crude oil subjected to refining involves a spectrum of different boiling points to extrac
The boiling point of ethyl alcohol is 173 degrees Fahrenheit. Ethyl alcohol is also called ethanol or grain alcohol. Its chemical formula is C2H6O, and the molecular weight is 46.068 grams per mole.
Sugar does not have an exact boiling point by itself as sugar does not melt or boil, but decomposes. There are boiling points when sugar is dissolved in water. However, those are not static numbers.
The additional molecules in milk keep its boiling point slightly higher than water, which boils at 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The chemical composition of milk dictates the boiling point and so there is no standard boiling point.
The element Tungsten has the highest melting and boiling points of any known substance, melting at 6,192 degrees Fahrenheit and boiling at 10,031 degrees Fahrenheit. For this reason, Tungsten is used in many applications that require dealing with very high temperatures.
Oxygen has a boiling point of minus 297.31 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 182.95 degrees Celsius and a melting point of minus 361.82 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 218.79 degrees Celsius. Oxygen is a gas at room temperature and is classified as a non-metal.
Iron starts to boil at the very high temperature of 5,182 degrees Fahrenheit. It's naturally in a solid state at room temperature and turns into a liquid at 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
Water has a high boiling point because its molecules are bound together by hydrogen bonding, which is a very strong intermolecular force. It takes more kinetic energy, or a higher temperature, to break the hydrogen bonding between water molecules, thus allowing them to escape as steam.
