Gas vs. Vapor: Know the Difference

By Shumaila Saeed || Updated on December 25, 2023
A gas is a state of matter with no fixed shape or volume, while vapor is a gas phase of a substance that is usually liquid or solid at room temperature.
Gas vs. Vapor

Key Differences

Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter, characterized by its ability to fill any container it occupies without a fixed shape or volume. Vapor, on the other hand, refers specifically to the gaseous phase of a substance that at normal conditions is in a liquid or solid state.

In terms of energy, gas particles possess higher kinetic energy allowing free and random motion. Vapor, conversely, is formed when a substance transitions from a liquid or solid state into a gas, often through the process of evaporation or sublimation.

The term gas is used more broadly and generally does not imply a change of state. Vapor, however, specifically indicates a substance in its gaseous form that is a result of temperature or pressure changes.

All vapors are gases, but not all gases are vapors. Gases are universal and not necessarily linked to a parent liquid or solid, while vapors directly correspond to the gaseous state of another physical state.

Gases are often used in various industrial and scientific applications for their properties, like oxygen or nitrogen gas. Vapors, such as steam from water, are often discussed in the context of their source material and the conditions leading to their formation.

Gas

An aëriform fluid; - a term used at first by chemists as synonymous with air, but since restricted to fluids supposed to be permanently elastic, as oxygen, hydrogen, etc., in distinction from vapors, as steam, which become liquid on a reduction of temperature.
