Expert Answer:

  • Boiling point depends on pressure and not on temperature.
  • Only effect of temperature will be that, the liquid will reach its boiling temperature faster  or slower.
  • If the outside temperature is low, then the liquid will reach its boiling point slower.
  • On the other hand, if the outside temperature is high, then the liquid will reach its boiling point faster as it will get heat from outside atmosphere.
  • But, in both the cases, the boiling point will remain the same for that particular liquid.
