612 feet above sea level.....i think.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1064613


At sea level water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. For every 500 feet above sea level, water boils about at 0.9F less. So at 4600 feet water would boil at 203.72 degrees Fahrenheit. (212-((0.9/500)*4600) means: normal boiling point (212 degrees) subtract 0.9 degrees per 500 feet (0.9/500) multiplied by elevation (4600 feet).

 Quoting: BRIEF AND TO THE POINT

I just boiled water at 180 degrees Fahrenheit . . . I used water which had been purified by using reverse osmosis from my drinking water system . . . I used a Cooper Cooking thermometer which is marked from 100 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and is marked every five (5) degrees. I left the thermometer in the water until boiling was unmistakable. I live at 1156 feet above sea level.
While the thermometer is not calibrated against any standard, it is interesting that what I found is at least 20 degrees under what is expected! Pressure is 30.05 inches. Likely an error on the accuracy of the thermometer. Noting the range of temperatures on the thermometer that is only a 7 - 8% error from 210 - 212 degrees expected. Probably within expected variability of a non commercial product. According to [link to www.csgnetwork.com] the boiling point at 30.05 inches or 1017.6058 milibars is 212.241 degrees F or 100.134 degrees C. I will try to repeat with a different device.

The earth atmospheric pressure has dropped by %6. It is caused by a decreasing magnetosphere.

Boil some water. It now boils at 176 degrees.

You'll be very pleased with our egg timer as it is also BROKEN, shipped directly to you with a nonworking bell!
We find it to be a perfect companion to our Broken Thermometers!!

Fondling of merchandise is available upon request, please allow 1 full shipping day extra for fondled merchandise as our experienced fondler (Heavy Hank) needs advanced notice due to high demand and low production..

So will that be one fondled order or two? ;)
 Quoting: AliceInTheRabbitHole


I would be willing to wait up to five days if you will upgrade me to Molest for no extra charge.
 Quoting: BRIEF AND TO THE POINT


Good NEWS! For people wanting the full out molestation we recommend taking a flight to our production plant. Molestation is included in the ticket price courtesy of TSA!

You'll receive your molestation, item order, plant tour AND a bonus lunch with Heavy Hank!
 Quoting: AliceInTheRabbitHole


I've reconsidered and I would like a refund please :(

You will need to retry this experiment without watching the pot…
 Quoting: White Hat


Yes, very interesting observational analysis indeed....

spock

One would need to factor in the "watched pot" effect in order to determine the correct point at which the said RO water at sea level at 60 °F (15.56 °C; 288.71 K) and 14.696 psi (1 atm) would boil would also need to determine the WPI (watched pot index) reading, which can be determined by the following formula...

W(z-y)2 = WPI index reading

W = number of watchers

z = number of watchers who regularly post on GLP

y = number of total nanoseconds of eye contact per watcher

That whole watch pot theory is a load of bullshit...I often chop veggies and cut meat while watching for a pot of water to boil, and it works every time...

Actually, you are correct sir...

I was making dinner and thought of this thread. I was making peas so figured what the hey. I have a Hamilton Beach thermometer. It started boiling at about 195 degrees. Then I moved the thermometer over to the part the was boiling and it went up to about 203 degrees. I'd have to do it again, but it is weird to watch it happen. I am 680 feet elevation in Ohio.

I am at sea level.

I just boiled water and watched the temperature on an industrial thermometer (belongs to husband) and a digital candy thermometer (belongs to me)

The bubbles started to leave the bottom of the pan at 60 degrees C (140 F)

I stirred to disperse the bubbles (did not stop the light boiling)

A full rolling boil began @ 70C (160F)



It was at a full boil (could not increase as temperature increased) at 80C (176F)

No, if you are taking this seriously, which I haven't so far you must use an oven...if you heat from the bottom only on a stove you will have fluctuating temperatures.

Makes sense. That would insure the uniformity of the thermometer's and the water's temperature throughout their shared environment. Problem is we don't have ovens so we can view such an event.

How can you have no oven? Are you a cave person?

Not one inwhich I can read the thermometer and see the water boil. . . and I doubt that you do either.


Sure I do. I have oven safe glass cookware and an oven with a glass window in the door and a light inside...I use it all the time to control what I cook without having to open the door...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!
