Explain which one will cause more severe burns - boiling water at 100oC or steam?

Answer:

Particles in steam, that is, water vapour at 373 K (100oC) have more energy than boiling water at the same temperature because particles in steam have absorbed extra energy in the form of latent heat of vaporisation.
