What Ray Bradbury novel is named for the temperature at which paper catches fire?

Answer:

Fahrenheit 451

Ignition temperature is the temperature at which something catches fire and burns. The ignition temperature of paper is 451 degrees Fahrenheit. Many people know this value from the Ray Bradbury novel, Fahrenheit 451, a dystopian novel about a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. To create his title, Bradbury called a local fire department to ask at what temperature paper would burn. The firemen put Bradbury on hold, burnt a book, and reported that the temperate it burnt at was "Fahrenheit 451".
