If I take pure carbon and heat it in an inert atmospher, at what temperature will it vaporize into carbon gas?

  • $\begingroup$ All elements have a vapor pressure, which is a function of temperature. $\endgroup$

Do you know the periodic table? https://www.ptable.com/?lang=en

melting point:

Diamond: 3823 K

Graphite: 3800 K

boiling point:

Graphite: 5100 K

Sublimation point:

Graphite: 3915 K (unspecified pressure)

Although they don't say under what atmosphere they are melting/boiling/sublimating the carbon.
