    1 - If the pressure inside cylinder raised to 500 Kpa when the water would start boiling ? and if some of the water heated from 0 degree to the atmospheric pressure when the water start boiling ?

    my answer
    A )

    Where did you got this number from? Looks a little bit too high for me.

    because as I know when 100 C the water will start boiling

    sorry not 150 just 100 C

    No, water definitely boils at more than 100 °C at 500 kPa. Question is - how much. The easiest approach is to look for boiling point tables.
