Steam saturation ratio and amount of water

Temp (°C)Calculated amt of water (mg)a at a steam saturation ratio of:
50% (saturated vapor × 1/2)100% (saturated vapor)1,000% (saturated vapor × 10)
1052.04.040.0
1102.34.646.0
1203.16.161.0
1213.26.363.0
  • a The amount of saturated vapor water was calculated by using a gas equation of vapor equivalent to the designated temperature for a 5-ml vial. The 50% steam saturation ratio was determined by using one-half the amount of water versus the saturated vapor. The 1,000% steam saturation ratio was determined by using 10 times the amount of water versus the saturated vapor.
