# Water - Thermophysical Properties

## Thermal properties of water at different temperatures like density, freezing temperature, boiling temperature, latent heat of melting, latent heat of evaporation, critical temperature and more.

Thermodynamic properties of water:

• Boiling temperature (at 101.325 kPa):     99.974 °C = 211.953 °F
• Bulk modulus elasticity:                            2.15 x 109 Pa or N/m2
• Critical temperature:                                 373.946 °C = 705.103 °F
• Critical pressure:                                      217.7 atm = 220.6 bar = 22.06 MPa (MN/m2) = 3200 psi (=lbf/in2)
• Critical density:                                         0.322 g/cm3 = 0.62478 slug/ft3 = 20.1018 lbm/ft3
• Ionization constant, pKw (at 25°C):          13.995
• Latent heat of melting:                             334 kJ/kg = 144 Btu(IT)/lb
• Latent heat of evaporation(at 100°C):     40.657 kJ/mol = 2256 kJ/kg = 970 Btu(IT)/lb
• Maximum density (at 4 oC):                      999.975 kg/m = 1.9403 slug/ft3 = 8.34519 lbm/gal(US)
• Melting temperature (at 101.325 kPa):     0 °C = 32°F
• Molar mass:                                             18.01527 g/mol
• pH (at 25°C):                                            6.9976
• Specific heat (Cp) water (at 15°C/60°F):  4.187 kJ/kgK = 1.001 Btu(IT)/(lbm °F) or kcal/(kg K)
• Specific heat ice:                                      2.108 kJ/kgK = 0.5035 Btu(IT)/(lbm °F) or kcal/(kg K)
• Specific heat water vapor:                        1.996 kJ/kgK =0.4767 Btu(IT)/(lbm °F) or kcal/(kg K)
• Specific Weight (at 4 oC):                         9.806 kN/m3 = 62.43 lbf/ft3
• Thermal expansion from 4 oC to 100 oC: 4.2x10-2 (Note! - volumetric temperature expansion of water is not linear with temperature)
• Triple point pressure:                               0.00604 atm = 0.00612 bar = 611.657 Pa = 0.08871 psi (=lbf/in2)
• Triple point temperature:                          0.01 °C = 32.02 °F
