What produces more severe burns, boiling water or steam? Why?
Steam produces more severe burns as compared to boiling water.
Reason: We know that water boils at 100°C and for converting to steam at 100°C it takes the latent heat of vaporization so steam has more heat than boiling water which is the latent heat which causes more severe burns than boiling water.
