# Water - Thermophysical Properties

## Thermal properties of water - 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 10
^{9}Pa or N/m^{2} - Critical temperature: 373.946 °C = 705.103 °F
- Critical pressure: 217.7 atm = 220.6 bar = 22.06 MPa (MN/m
^{2}) = 3200 psi (=lb_{f}/in^{2}) - Critical density: 0.322 g/cm
^{3}= 0.62478 slug/ft^{3}= 20.1018 lb_{m}/ft^{3} - 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
^{o}C): 999.975 kg/m^{3 }= 1.9403 slug/ft^{3}= 9.71086 lb_{m}/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 (C
_{p}) water (at 15°C/60°F): 4.187 kJ/kgK = 1.001 Btu(IT)/(lb_{m}°F) or kcal/(kg K) - Specific heat ice: 2.108 kJ/kgK = 0.5035 Btu(IT)/(lb
_{m}°F) or kcal/(kg K) - Specific heat water vapor: 1.996 kJ/kgK =0.4767 Btu(IT)/(lb
_{m}°F) or kcal/(kg K) - Specific Weight (at 4
^{o}C): 9.806 kN/m^{3 }= 62.43 lb_{f}/ft^{3} - Thermal expansion from 4
^{o}C to 100^{o}C: 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 (=lb
