Boiling Point – Definition and Pronunciation

/ˈbɔɪ.lɪŋ ˌpɔɪnt/

What is Boiling Point?

Boiling point is the temperature at which a liquid’s vapor pressure equals the external pressure surrounding the liquid, causing it to turn into vapor. This phase transition occurs at a specific temperature for each substance, under given pressure conditions, and is a key characteristic in identifying and understanding substances.

Examples of Boiling Point

Boiling point takes place in a liquid when the vapour pressure is equal to the pressure in the liquid.

From Chemical Composition and Physical Properties of Liquefied Gases“Chemical and Physical Properties of Liquefied Gases”.

This pressure will allow the cargo at the bottom of a full shore tank to sustain a temperature perhaps one degree Centrigrade warmer than its atmospheric boiling point.

From Preparation and Execution Cargo Operations LNG and LPG“Carrying out cargo operations of LNG and LPG take place”.

LNG is produced by cooling natural gas below its boiling point, -162 °C (-259 °F), and is stored in double-walled cryogenic containers at or slightly above atmospheric pressure.

From Basic knowledge of tankers“Basic general technical LNG LPG tankers information”.
