The boiling point of water is said to occur when temperature at which vapor stage of a liquid becomes at par with the environmental pressure surrounding the liquid. This varies according to elevation level where the liquid is at that moment. At sea level the boiling point of pure water is at 100 degrees Centigrade or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Atmospheric pressure is a determining factor for the increase or decrease of the boiling point of water. The density of atmospheric pressure at sea level is considerably higher in comparison to the thinner atmospheric pressure at a considerably higher sea level peaks.

Boiling point of water at sea level is 100 °C or 212 °F.
At higher elevations , where atmospheric pressure is lower, boiling point is lower as well.
Boiling point is decreasing 1 °C with every 285 meters of elevation.
On Mt. Everest , at altitude of 8,848 m, boiling point of water is 69 °C or 156.2 °F.

Boiling point of water is at sea level 212 °F or 100 °C. AT higher elevations, due to lowere atmospheric pressure, the boiling temperature is lower: 202.89 °F or 94.94 °C (at approx 5000 ft or 1524 m above sea level) . This approximate and is based on relative pressure.

The boiling point of pure water is 100`C or 212`F.It is most common question in earlier years of school.At higher sea level the point and temperature may vary.
Thanks for the question.

The boiling point of water 100 °C. But for water without any solution, if their is any thing dilute on it the boiling point is vary

I learnt this somewhere. In primary school some years ago. The boiling point of water is 100 degree celsius at sea level, I think.

At sea level it is 212 degrees F, at a high altitude it is much higher.

The normal boiling point for water is at, 212 °F or 100 °C
