No. Steam is the gaseous form of water, and is invisible. The cloud of white stuff you can see above a boiling kettle is water vapor; droplets formed by the condensation of the steam as it collides with the cooler air outside the kettle.

Water vapor and steam are the same thing, but that stuff you can see isn't steam. Neither steam nor water vapor are visible. The cloud of white stuff you can see above a boiling kettle is water droplets formed by the condensation of the water vapor/steam as it collides with the cooler air outside the kettle.

It isn't. Water vapor and steam are the same thing, but that stuff you can see isn't steam. Neither steam nor water vapor are visible.

Well Vapor And Steam Are The Same Thing,In That Case It Would Be Evaporation Since Vapor/Steam When Liquid Turns Into A Gas :)

Water vapor can be found in steam, clouds, and fog

water vapor and steam ARE the same thing. they are both caused by water heating up and evaporating.

Yes, but that stuff you can see isn't steam. Neither steam nor water vapor are visible. The could of white stuff you can see above a boiling kettle is water droplets formed by the condensation of the water vapor/steam as it collides with the cooler air outside the kettle.

Close... water:steam::liquid:vapor (or, in normal words, "Water is to steam as liquid is to vapor.") Steam is water vapor, but that stuff you can see isn't steam. Neither steam nor water vapor are visible. The cloud of white stuff you can see above a boiling kettle is water droplets formed by the condensation of the water vapor/steam as it collides with the cooler air outside the kettle.

They're both water in gaseous form.

Yes water vapor is steam. It is formed when water heats up to 100 degrees Celsius.

There technically is no difference, but steam is more visible and is said to be hotter than the water vapor we inhale. But once the steam cools down it is water vapor.

User Avatar

yes it can. when you feel steam it is water vapor

Steam is not a solution; steam is water vapor.

steam, fog, water vapor, mist...

So specifically steam will form when you boil water. While water vapor forms when the sun evaporates water. Steam you would most likely see, while water vapor is more of an invisible gas.

Steam (in all its uses), water vapor (as in humidity).

The ter for steam is H2O or water vapor.

Water. Water vapor occurs when water evaporates, or heats up so much that it turns into a gas. This gas is called water vapor, or steam, although steam is hot water vapor.

No. True steam is transparent. The white puffs of vapor you see coming from a tea kettle are water vapor, not steam.

yes, like fog is the same as water vapor. i learned this in science the other day. because my teacher said there is water vapor on the mountain.. and i was like yeah theres fog too! HE LAUGHED FOREVER!

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

No. Steam is warm water vapor. Heat is added or external energy that causes a rise in temperature.

User Avatar

Steam is water vapor, usually created by using heat. To change water vapor back into liquid water, the condensation process is used.

User Avatar

Water vapor forms when you heat water to the extent where it evaporates into steam( Gas) and turns into water vapor.

It is called water vapor, and it has the same formula as water, H20 (g).*Water vapor at a temperature higher than its boiling point is called steam.
