Abstract

The vapor which is utilized well in industry is gas and steam. In general, steam is defined as “materials which have evaporated from liquid or sublimed from solid,” and the other vapor is defined as gas. Because the character of actual gas is complicated, it is difficult to make simple equation expressing the state of gas which changes with temperature and pressure. Therefore, gas is usually treated as ideal gas in approximation.
