The Boiling Point of Water Calculator
What is the Boiling Point of Water?
Water boils at 212°F at sea level, but only at sea level. Changes in atmospheric pressure will alter the temperature at which water boils. To use this calculator you will need your current pressure and elevation.
How to Calculate the Boiling Point of Water
Step 1: Find your local pressure and elevation
Find your current barometric pressure and elevation by your zipcode, then enter those values in the calculator below (page will open in a new window and will look like the example to the right).
Step 2: Enter your local pressure and elevation, then calculate your local boiling point
