Heat (Thermodynamics) Science Fair Project

Boiling Point of Water

Boiling Point of Water | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
We'll investigate how the boiling point of water changes when we use different amounts of water, different types of heating devices, different room temperatures, and different altitudes.


The hypothesis is that water will come to boil more quickly at lower temperatures at higher altitudes.

Method & Materials

You will use a hot plate, stove, thermometer, and beakers to measure the boiling point of water in different conditions.
You will need a high rise building, hot plate, stove, 8 beakers, 1800ml water, an air-conditioned room, and a thermometer.


The experiment showed that the boiling point of water was the same in all conditions except when it was boiled on the 50th floor of the building, where it boiled at 0.5°C lower.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how the boiling point of water can be affected by different conditions.

Also Consider

Experiment variations to consider include repeating the experiment on a rainy day and observing the effects of different concentrations of salt on the boiling temperature of water.
