What Temperature Does Water Boil?


The boiling point of water is 100 ?øC (212 ?øF) at standard pressure. On top of Mount Everest the pressure is about 260 mbar (26.39 kPa) so the boiling point of water is 69 ?øC. (156.2 ?øF).

Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Celsius at sea level and under standard conditions. The atmospheric pressure, which changes with elevation, can make these temperatures slightly differ. For instance, at higher altitudes, the pressure is lower, so water boils at a lower temperature and vice versa.
