You start at sea level on the beach in California. What would the atmospheric pressure be? Then you move to Los Angeles where the altitude is 87 meters above sea level what happens to the boiling point?

  • Chemistry -

    At sea level the pressure is 760 mm Hg if that is standard.
    The boiling point of a liquid (I assume that's your question) decreases with altitude.
