A hot steam burn is worse than boiling water burn:

(a) If 4 mL of 100°C hot steam condenses on your arm, how much energy is released as it condenses and cools to human body temperature of 37°C?

(b) If 4 mL of 100°C hot water spills on your arm, how much energy is released as it cools to human body temperature of 37°C?
