P5_8 Tea Time in the Solar System

Hannah Natasha Lerman, Benedict Irwin, Peter Hicks


This paper explores the varying boiling temperatures of water on different bodies in the Solar System required to make a cup of tea. We calculated this value for Venus, Earth, Mars, Titan, Triton and Callisto as these have atmospheres with measured atmospheric pressures at their surface. It was found that Callisto required the lowest temperature to boil water at 126K whilst Venus required the highest at 569K. The temperature calculated on Titan was relatively similar to that on Earth with a difference of 11K.
