User: Steam burn is more severe than that of boiling water because?

Weegy: Consider steam at 100C and water at 100C. When boiling water (100C) touches your skin some heat will be transferred and the temperature of the water [ will decrease. For the sake of discussion, let's suppose we have 1 g of water and the final temperature is 80C. In that case, q=mc?T. Therefore, 83.6J is transferred. When steam at 100C touches your skin it must first change from the gas phase to the liquid phase. This process transfers 2260J of heat for every gram of steam. q=mQv, where Qv = 2260J/g. Then if the water at 100C drops to 80C it will give off an additional 83.6J. As you can see, the additional heat released by the condensing steam is considerably greater than the heat released as the hot water cools. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20120618080749AAPIQxU ]
