The boiling point of gasoline ranges between 104 and 392 degrees Fahrenheit. The wide range of boiling points is due to the many different blends of components available to provide different characteristics such as higher octane, lower fuel deposits and overall volatility.
The combination of chemicals in gasoline to produce different octane levels is one factor that influences the boiling point. A fuel's octane influences its tendency to join in reactions prior to combustion, and increasing octane means adding agents that minimize those reactions. The specific additive used to boost octane, reduce harmful emissions or produce other effects pushes the boiling point higher or lower.Learn More
Hydrogen does not have a noble gas configuration because it its the first element on the periodic table. Only elements that fall after the noble gases on the periodic table can have noble gas configurations.Full Answer >
There is no single freezing temperature for gasoline. Gasoline is made out of different molecules, or hydrocarbons, and these components each have different freezing temperatures.Full Answer >
To remain in its solid phase, dry ice must be kept at temperatures lower than -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit. At higher temperatures, dry ice begins to sublimate, or turn directly from a solid into a gas.Full Answer >
