Which would burn the most 100 g of water at 100 degrees C or 100 g of steam at 100 degrees C?

  • Physics -

    The steam gives out more heat in cooling to body temperature because it has to give off the heat of the phase change from steam to water (heat of vaporization) as well as the heat required for the temperature change from 100 C to body temp.
