Answer

This is the temperature at which liquid oxygen "boils," where the vapor pressure is the same in both the liquid and its environment and the liquid becomes a vapor.

Work Step by Step

At $-183^{\circ}C$, the saturated vapor pressure for oxygen is 1 atm (i.e., the same as atmospheric pressure). At this temperature and pressure, liquid oxygen boils and vaporizes.
