Solid sulfur has a melting point of 108.7 degrees Fahrenheit, and it will sublime below what pressure?

The answer is not known with certainty.

In the video above, sulfur is shown to sublime at atmospheric pressure in a vacuum chamber.

Where does solid sulfur sublime: below what pressure will solid sulfur sublime at atmospheric pressure in a vacuum chamber?

The answer is not known with certainty.

In the video above, we show that it can sublimate when subjected to high heat and low air pressures while submerged in liquid nitrogen.

As shown in Figure A below, as temperature increases toward boiling point (Figure B), less gas remains trapped inside the material which decreases its volume before breaking free from surface tension like bubbles forming from water heated by the sun or an open flame
