The purposes and motivation of the research described in this paper were 1) to try three variations on the latent heat of vaporization (one a constant and two different functions of temperature) and apply these toward computing boiling temperature as a function of the total atmospheric pressure in the Clausius--Clapeyron equation and 2) to determine a direct function of total atmospheric pressure for computing boiling temperature.
