Boiling water has a lower latent heat than steam. Steam is the transition from liquid to gas for boiling water. If by boiling water you mean liquid water at the temperature of 100 degrees Celsius then yes, steam has a higher latent heat.

Because steam has more latent heat than boiling water

steam burns more than boiling water because it has extra energy in the form of latent heat of vapourization.

steam is the gaseous transformation that takes place on heating water to its boiling point.Steam will give you more burn than the water boiling at 100 c as it has the latent heat of vapourisation in addition to the heat of fusion.Basically it has more heat content in the steam state than boiling water state.

Steam often causes worse burns than boiling water because as the steam condenses on the skin, it releases the latent heat of vaporization, which is very significant for water. Thus, more heat is transferred to one's skin, exacerbating the burns.

They make the water into steam. Part of it is transferred into latent heat, which is heat water requires to become steam. As you keep heating the water (assuming it's a closed flask), then eventually all the water will become steam.

because steam is boiling water is hot it turns into a gas therefore you get steam

Latent heat of evaporation of water to steam is 2270 KJ/Kg

When they say boiling water they mean some water is turning to steam but not all off the water has to be over 100 degrees for some to be boiling.

Boiling Water + Steam x Gushing in the air = Geiser...

because water between shells reaches saturation point, which is above 100c latent heat of steam --

Temperature doesn't give the whole picture when you talk about boiling. A more useful property to talk about is enthalpy. Enthalpy is the energy held by the water. Prior to the boiling point, enthalpy and temperature both rise linearly. At the boiling point, temperature stops rising, but enthalpy continues to rise until it becomes steam. If you were to continue adding energy to the steam, it's temperature would rise again. The amount of energy that must be added to water to get it from water just at the boiling point to steam is the latent heat of vaporization and is equal to the enthalpy rise discussed in the previous paragraph. The latent heat of vaporization and the temperature where boiling will occur are dependant on the pressure.

The fear of boiling water refers to either getting burned by the steam, or the boiling water.

Steam. Liquids turn to solids when they reach a temperature, so steam has to be hotter than boiling water.

Steam is a gas stage of water. You can produce steam by heating water to boiling point.

No. Steam is water vapor. Steam is formed by boiling water, which is a physical change.

Because steam is the hotter air from boiling water, which means steam is hotter than the water. L+T <3

water evaporating when water heats it gets to its highest boiling point which is a 100 degrees, then slowly starts rising in the air which is called evaporating, this is when steam is formed.

Yes, it is a noun. Steam is a hot vapor released by boiling, ordinarily boiling water.

The gases in the bubbles in boiling water is steam.

steam forms when water reaches boiling point and the water condenses.

373.15 K = 100°C = 212°F = boiling point of water at sea level Steam at that temperature causes severe burns because it is very hot, and because water is very efficient at transferring heat. The steam also has a significantly greater amount of heat than liquid water just below the boiling point, because the steam also has the latent heat of vaporization.

A hot spring that naturally shoots steam and boiling water is called a geyser.
