Vapor vs. Steam

Key Differences

Vapor generally refers to the gaseous state of a substance that is typically solid or liquid at room temperature. Steam, specifically, is the vapor that forms when water is heated to the boiling point and undergoes a phase change.

The term vapor encompasses a wide range of substances in their gaseous forms, not limited to water. Steam, however, is exclusively associated with water vapor, especially when it's visible as a mist or cloud.

Vapor can be produced at various temperatures, depending on the substance, and does not necessarily require boiling. Steam is produced from water at its boiling point, signifying a specific temperature and pressure where water turns to gas.

Feb 23, 2024
In scientific contexts, vapor can refer to a gas below its critical temperature, meaning it can be condensed to a liquid by increasing pressure without lowering temperature. Steam, in a technical sense, often refers to water vapor that is above the boiling point of water and is in equilibrium with its liquid phase.

The usage of vapor is often in the context of evaporation or sublimation, where a substance gradually turns into gas. Steam is typically associated with the rapid boiling of water, producing a hot mist that is visible in the air.
