# What is the standard temperature of boiling water?

## What is the standard temperature of boiling water?

100° C
The boiling point of a liquid varies according to the applied pressure; the normal boiling point is the temperature at which the vapour pressure is equal to the standard sea-level atmospheric pressure (760 mm [29.92 inches] of mercury). At sea level, water boils at 100° C (212° F).

## What is the temperature for boiling water for 5 minutes?

After boiling a cup of water, I recorded its temperature every minute for thirty minutes….

How long does it take for boiling water to become room temperature?

Cooling from 100 to 45 in a closed container, not sealed so you don’t get a vacuum, probably takes 100 minutes or so. 50–45 20 min, but you said open pot, so it’s faster, as you get material loss (evaporation/”sensible heat”) as the water cools.

### What temperature does it take to boil water?

Boiling means bringing water to 212 degrees Fahrenheit for cooking. But you don’t need a thermometer to boil water.

### What temperature is hotter than the boiling point of water?

Liquid water can be hotter than 100 °C (212 °F) and colder than 0 °C (32 °F). Heating water above its boiling point without boiling is called superheating. If water is superheated, it can exceed its boiling point without boiling. You may have firsthand experience with the phenomenon, as its fairly common when microwaving water.

What is the temperature at which water begins to boil?

The phrase ‘boiling point’ essentially means that water is transitioning from liquid to gaseous state at a rapid speed. Boiling water is characterized by energetic bubbles and steam and it is considered to be hot. Conventionally, the temperature at which water boils is 100 degrees Celsius or 212 Fahrenheit but only at sea level.

#### Does boiling of water depend on temperature?

The boiling point is the temperature at which boiling occurs for a specific liquid. For example, for water, the boiling point is 100ºC at a pressure of 1 atm. The boiling point of a liquid depends on temperature, atmospheric pressure, and the vapor pressure of the liquid.
