What the Melting and Boiling Point of Water?


The melting point of water is 0°C or 32°F and its boiling point is 100°C or 212°F. Compared to the other molecules around it or its heavier cousin, hydrogen sulphide (H 2 S), water has melting and boiling points that are anomalously high. This is due to the fact that the hydrogen bonds between water molecules must be broken for a phase transition to occur. The extra energy required results in more heat being necessary and a higher temperature.

1 Additional Answer
The boiling point of water is the temperature at which liquid water starts turning to vapour. For pure water, the temperature is 100 degrees Celsius. The point at which solid water turns into liquid is called its melting point which is 0 degrees Celsius for pure water. These temperatures are slightly different when the water contains impurities.
