# Does water get hotter the longer you boil it?

Contents

The water may boil more vigorously and convert into steam more quickly, but it won’t get hotter. In fact, at the microscopic level, there may be cooler regions of boiling water. When vapor bubbles form near a heat source, like at the bottom of a pot, the gas bubbles insulate the water from the heat.

## What is the temperature of boiling water after 5 minutes?

After boiling a cup of water, I recorded its temperature every minute for thirty minutes.

Time Temperature
4 174
5 167

7 156

## How hot does water get when boiling?

As we all know, for pure water at standard pressure (the air pressure that exists at sea level), the temperature at which this occurs is 212°F (100°C).

## Does boiling water ever get hotter than 212 degrees?

A: It is not true that water can only get up to 212 degrees and as cold as 32 degrees. After water changes from a liquid to a gas (at 212 degrees Fahrenheit) it can actually heat up much hotter than that.

## How cold is a glass of ice water?

Originally Answered: What is the temperature of iced water? 32 degrees F ; 0 degrees C by definition, under controlled conditions. This is the temperature where pure water and ice can coexist.

## How long does it take for boiling water to cool to lukewarm?

The cooling rate will also depend on the mass (volume) of the water, the mass of the pot, the thermal transfer capacity of the pot and anything it contacts, ambient temperature, air pressure, humidity, purity of the water, etc. The answer to your question is “close enough”. I’d wait about 30 seconds.
