    It's just water vapour. Boiling the water is a physical change, not a chemical one.

    realised it can't be air because the air is above the water yet the bubbles appear at the bottom, therefore it must be oxygen

    Boiling only breaks the bonds between the molecules not the bonds between the elements.
