Default Meat Probe boil test ( semi successful )

the water got up to it's boiling point and I put the meat probe inside the pot.

And it read 210 so it's off by 2 degree's

212 is the boiling temp right?

where: TB = the normal boiling point, K
R
= the ideal gas constant, 8.314 J · K-1 · mol-1
P
0 = is the vapor pressure at a given temperature, atm
ΔHvap = the heat of vaporization of the liquid, J/mol
T
0 = the given temperature, K
ln = the natural logarithm to the base e


212 depending on your elevation

Yes, if that were mine I'd leave it as is. That's close enough.

What's your altitude?
At 1000' ASL, water boils at 210.2 degrees. Barometric pressure can also affect the boiling point.

That should give you a BP of 210.5 degrees. Sounds close to me.

That's assuming a barometric pressure of 29.92 inches of mercury or 1013 millibars.



Chuck

EDIT: Ignore this. that would be sea level pressure, which wouldn't be measurable where you are.

Yep, I'd say that thermo is pretty accurate according to the above.

This came up a few weeks ago. go to this link and you can figure out what your boiling point is each time.
