Steam Density

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Steam has a higher density than water vapor, the higher the pressure the higher the steam density.

 

Steam Density FORMULA

\(\large{ \rho_s = \frac{P \; MW}{R^* \; T}  }\)    

Where:

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = steam density

\(\large{ MW }\) = molecular weight of water

\(\large{ P }\) = pressure

\(\large{ T }\) = temperature

\(\large{ R^* }\) = universal gas constant
