IF THE AIR IS 20 DEGREE CELSIUS IT'S HOT, IF THE WATER IS WITH 20 DERGEE CELSIUS IT'S HOTTER THAN AIR, IF STEAM HAS 20 DEGREE CELSIUS IT'S VERY HOT. WHY IS THAT EVEN IF THE TEMPERATURE IS THE SAME?
Gram for gram, water has more heat than air because q = mcT since the specific heat of water is higher than that of air. For steam, the extra heat from steam is caused by the head of condensation that is in addition to the heat of the water.
