Water - Saturation Pressure

Online calculator, figures and tables showing water saturation pressure at temperatures ranging from 0 to 370 °C and from 32 to 700°F - in Imperial and SI Units

Water tends to evaporate or vaporize by projecting molecules into the space above its surface. If the space is confined the partial pressure exerted by the molecules increases until the rate at which molecules reenter the liquid is equal to the rate at which they leave. The vapour pressure of water is the pressure at which water vapour is in thermodynamic equilibrium with its condensed state. At higher pressures water would condense. At this equilibrium condition the vapor pressure is the saturation pressure.

Online Water saturation pressure Calculator

The calculator below can be used to calculate the water saturation pressure at given temperatures.
The output pressure is given as kPa, bar, atm, psi (lb/in2) and psf (lb/ft2).

Temperatur must be within the ranges 0-370 °C, 32-700 °F, 273-645 K and 492-1160 °R

Temperature
