Vapor vs gas

Postby Neha Gupta 2A » Wed Jan 20, 2021 12:16 pm

Is there a difference between vapor and gas or are they the same thing?

Vapor is just another way of saying a substance is in the gas phase. So yes, they are the same thing.

To go into more detail, in relations to phase changes vapor is more commonly used while gas is more commonly used in most other senses.

I think they are used interchangeably like the others said! You also might see something referred to as a vapor when it's in the gaseous state (like "water vapor" when H20 is in a gas state).

Vapor is a form of gas and for the topics we have covered so far when vapor is mentioned in a problem it is safe to assume they are talking about gas! For now I don't think there needs to be any specification on how they are alike or different.

Vapor and gas are interchangeable. So when they say enthalpy of vaporization, they mean the phase change from a liquid to the gas state.

I think for the sake of this course, vapor and gas are the same thing. However, at least for me, I think gas typically refers to something that is naturally in gas phase, such as nitrogen and hydrogen, while vapor refers to something that is "vaporized" into gas, such as water vapor and iodine vapor.

For the most part and in this class specifically, a gas and a vapor are synonymous. I think the technical difference is that vapors are the gas phase of a substance that would usually be liquid at room temperature/standard conditions.

I think for the purposes of this class, the two are the same thing since they share similar properties. But gases are a state of matter, and vapors usually coexist in equilibrium with their liquid/solid states but gases don't. Vapor suggests that the substance has undergone a phase change, but gas does not.

I looked online and found that in general, vapor is a mixture of two or more different phases at room temperature, and these phases are typically in liquid and gaseous phases. On the other hand, gas usually contains a single thermodynamic state at room temperature. So in short, yes, vapor will tend to have H2O as part of the mixture.

Both terms are interchangeable. I think it just has to do with the context/topic. Vapor is often times used when talking about phase changes (i.e. vaporization of water), while I feel like gas is used when it's being manipulated in a system. you rarely hear "vapor at a constant pressure". Hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure a vapor and a gas are the same thing? After doing a little google search, it seems like there could be a difference. It seems that a vapor is a mixture of a gas and a liquid, where the gas is the main composition.

I thought it was the same thing, and I am assumung that we do not need to know the difference between the two for the class. However I found that vapour phase consists of a phase with two different substances at room temperature, whereas a gas phase consists of a single substance at a defined thermodynamic range, at room temperature.

Same thing. If a chemical is usually in a liquid state, one might refer to the gaseous form as a vapor but the definition of both is identical.

I believe the terms vapor and gas can be used interchangeably.
