  1. If you want the vapor pressure of water at 20 degrees C, you look it up in a set of tables. Almost every chemistry or physics text has a set of vapor pressures at various temperatures for water. If it's something besides water, and you know the delta Hvap, you use the Clausius-Clapeyron equation.
