Which one of the following causes more severe burns -water at 100 degree celcius or steam at 100 C.
Asked by Virender | 27th Apr, 2016, 05:56: PM
Steam causes severe burns than water. Particles in steam, that is, water vapour at 373 K (100oC) have more energy than boiling water at the same temperature as particles in steam have absorbed extra energy in the form of latent heat of vaporisation.
