The properties of the real vapour, like those of ice and liquid water, are affected by the forces acting between the molecules. Studies of water in the vapour state have contributed to what is known about the interactions between water molecules. This chapter first considers the origin of these forces and their relation to the second and third virial coefficients of steam. It then discusses the thermodynamic properties of real vapour in detail.

Keywords:   water vapour, forces, water molecules, steam, thermodynamic properties, virial coefficients
