What Is the Melting Point of Wax?


The melting point of wax is 58 degrees Celsius. Wax is a chemical compound that is malleable near ambient temperatures. It is insoluble in water and it usually melts at 58 degrees Celsius to give a low viscosity liquid.
Q&A Related to "What Is the Melting Point of Wax"
It's pretty low - around 30-40 Celsius - but that's actually high for a covalent compound like paraffin. The reason is, paraffin molecules have a long carbon chain of 40 or more carbon
The melting point of paraffin wax is about 125F. Temperatures can vary
Matter exists in four stages: solid, liquid, gas and plasma. With the exception of fire, most matter we encounter is in the solid, liquid or gas phase. The temperature and pressure
1 Additional Answer
The answer to this question depends on what type of wax you are referring to, because different types have different melting points. Bees wax melts at 62 degrees C while parafin wax can melt at 55 degrees C.
