To calculate vapor pressure at a given temperature, you will need to use the Ideal Gas Law. This law states that for a gas at constant temperature and volume, the pressure is proportional to the number of molecules present. In order to find vapor pressure, you must first determine the number of molecules present in the sample.

Once you have this information, you can then plug it into the Ideal Gas Law equation to solve for pressure.

- Find the vapor pressure of water at the given temperature using a vapor pressure chart or online calculator
- Subtract the vapor pressure of water from the atmospheric pressure to find the partial pressure of water vapor in the air
- Divide the partial pressure of water vapor by the atmospheric pressure to find the relative humidity
- Multiply the relative humidity by 100 to find the percent humidity

## Find the Vapour Pressure (Clausius-Clapeyron Equation)

## How to Calculate Vapour Pressure

Vapour pressure is the pressure of a vapour in equilibrium with its non-vapour phase. The vapour pressure of a liquid is usually lower than the surrounding atmospheric pressure, unless the liquid is heated to its boiling point. The normal boiling point is the temperature at which the vapour pressure of a liquid equals the atmospheric pressure.

To calculate the vapour pressure of a liquid, you need to know its vaporization enthalpy (ΔHvap) and its boiling point (Tb). The following equation can be used:
P = e^((-ΔHvap)/(R*Tb)) * P_atm

where R is the gas constant and P_atm is the atmosphericpressure.

## Clausius-Clapeyron Equation

The Clausius-Clapeyron equation is a thermodynamic identity that expresses the relationship between the vapor pressure of a substance and its temperature. The equation is named after Rudolf Clausius and Benoît Paul Émile Clapeyron, who both independently derived it in 1850.
The Clausius-Clapeyron equation has many applications in engineering and physics.

For example, it can be used to design steam power plants, calculate the efficiency of heat engines, and predict the behavior of gases under extreme conditions. It also plays a role in understanding phase transitions, such as the melting of ice or the boiling of water.
The simplest form of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation states that:

P = P_0 \exp \left( \frac{-\Delta H}{R T} \right)
where:
P is the vapor pressure of the substance at temperature T (in Kelvins)

P_0 is a reference vapor pressure (usually taken to be 1 bar) 1 bar = 100 kPa), 1 kPa ≈ 0.01 atm)

## Clausius-Clapeyron Equation Calculator

The Clausius-Clapeyron equation is a useful tool for calculating the equilibrium vapor pressure of a substance. This calculator can be used to determine the vapor pressure at a given temperature, or to find the temperature at which the vapor pressure is equal to a given value.
To use this calculator, enter the desired temperature and either the equilibrium vapor pressure or saturation vapor pressure.

The calculator will then solve for the other quantity.
This equation is named after Rudolf Clausius and Émile Clapeyron, who both independently derived it in 1834-35. It relates the change in entropy of a gas (ΔS) to the change in enthalpy of vaporization (ΔH), and can be written as:

ΔS = ΔH/T
where T is absolute temperature. Rearranging this equation gives:

## How to Calculate Vapor Pressure of Water

Vapor pressure is the pressure of a vapor in equilibrium with its non-vapor phases. The vapor pressure of water is the equilibrium pressure from a water/air mixture at a given temperature, and it can be calculated using the Antoine Equation.
The Antoine equation is:

log10P=A−(B/(C+T))
where P is the vapor pressure (in mmHg), T is the temperature (°C), A, B, and C are constants that vary depending on the compound. For water, A = 8.07131, B = 1730.63, and C = 233.426.

Remember that log10(P) means “log base 10 of P”. So to calculate vapor pressure all you need to do is plug in your values for P, T ,A ,B ,and C into the equation and solve!

## How Do You Find the Vapor Pressure of Water at a Given Temperature?

To find the vapor pressure of water at a given temperature, you can use the Antoine Equation. This equation is:
log10(P) = A – (B/(T+C))

where P is the vapor pressure (in mmHg), T is the temperature (in °C), and A, B, and C are constants.
You can look up the values of A, B, and C for water in a table (see link below). Once you have these values, plug them into the equation above to calculate the vapor pressure of water at your given temperature.

## What is the Vapor Pressure at 25 Degrees Celsius?

The vapor pressure of a liquid is the pressure exerted by the vapor of the liquid on its container. The SI unit for vapor pressure is the pascal (Pa), which is equivalent to one newton per square meter (N/m2). The vapor pressure of water at 25 degrees Celsius is approximately 2.33 kPa.

## How Do You Calculate Total Vapor Pressure?

In order to calculate the total vapor pressure, you need to know the partial pressures of each individual component in the mixture. The total vapor pressure is then simply the sum of all of the partial pressures.
For example, let’s say we have a mixture of water and ethanol.

We know that the partial pressure of water is 23.76 kPa and the partial pressure of ethanol is 51.64 kPa. Therefore, the total vapor pressure would be 75.4 kPa ((23.76)+(51.64)).
It’s important to note that this only works for ideal mixtures.

In reality, there are usually interactions between different components in a mixture which can affect the vaporpressure (and other properties).

## How Do You Calculate Vapor Pressure from Boiling Point?

In order to calculate the vapor pressure from boiling point, you must first determine the atmospheric pressure. This can be done by using a barometer. Once you have determined the atmospheric pressure, you must then find the boiling point of water at that particular pressure.

This information can be found in a steam tables.
Once you have determined the boiling point of water, you must then subtract that number from the atmospheric pressure. The result is your vapor pressure.

## Conclusion

Vapor pressure is the pressure of a gas above a liquid. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with temperature. At a given temperature, the vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the atmospheric pressure if the liquid is in equilibrium with its vapors.

The higher the vapor pressure, the more volatile the liquid.
To calculate the vapor pressure at a given temperature, you will need to know the boiling point of the liquid and the atmospheric pressure. The boiling point is the temperature at which the vapor Pressure is equal to atmospheric Pressure .

Atmospheric Pressure = 760 mmHg (millimeters mercury) or 29.92 inches mercury
1) Find out what your local barometric reading is in either millimeters mercury or inches mercury. This can be found on most weather websites or applications.

For this example, we will use 29.92 inches mercury which converts to 760 mmHg.
2) Use one of two formulas depending on whether you are using Celsius or Fahrenheit as your unit of measurement for temperature:
VP = 1333 * P / T – 460 (for celsius)

or
VP = 1093 * P / T – 391 (for fahrenheit)
3) In our example, we would plug in 29.92 for P and 100 C for T into our formula yielding:
