The boiling point of water is 100°C, 212°F or 373.15 Kelvin under standard conditions at sea level (at one atmosphere of pressure).
The boiling point of water and any other substance depends on the atmospheric pressure, which changes with elevation. At higher altitudes, the pressure is lower, and so water boils at a lower temperature. If the barometric pressure is not at the standard value, the boiling point will be different. For example, water boils at 72 degrees Celsius on Mount Everest.
Under a partial vacuum water boils at room temperature. In space (a full vacuum) water goes directly from solid ice to gas without even melting or boiling, this is called sublimation.
Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit and 100 degrees Celsius.
The above answer is correct, provided you are at sea level. The higher you go the lower the temprature is needed to reach boiling. Getting a bit more technical, it also depends on the purity of the water you are boiling. Best we got in height school was around 97 degrees Celsius.

What is the boiling point of water in space?

Answer . The boiling point of a liquid is the temperature where the vapor pressure is equal to the atmospheric pressure. Vapor pressure increases with temperature, as you h

What is the Boiling point of water and milk?

The boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius. That would be 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Milk,a mixture of water and fat, is just slightly heavier than water, so theboiling p

What is the boiling point of water vapor?

Water vapour doesn't boil, but liquid water's boiling point is 100 degrees C, or 212 degrees F. boiling point is that point at which the vapour pressure of a liquid become equ

What is the boiling point of water in desert?

The boiling point of water depends upon the elevation above sealevel. At sea level, water boils at 100 degrees C. The boilingpoint decreases as altitude increases. The boiling
