You are in a mountain range with atmospheric air pressure of 520 mmHg, and you wish to boil some eggs. What is the approximate boiling point of the water at this air pressure?

  • boiling point -

    Use ln(p1/p1) = dHvap/R (1/T1-1/T2)
    p1 = 522
    p2 = 760
    T1 = ?
    T2 = 273.15
    dHvap = 40,650
