Why is it incorrect to say that the boiling point of a substance is 100 C?
Perhaps because you haven't specified a pressure?
We usually quote the
But we could perform a vacuum distillation, such that at LOWER temperatures than the
I grant that the pressure here is likely one atmosphere (and that the substance is water), BUT we don't KNOW this for
It changes with change in pressure.
Because you have no idea what the substance is.
A boiling point is intrinsic to what the substance even is. If it's table salt, then the boiling point is much higher than
