hi. I have a question that I posted here: http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/75094/pressurechangeofwaterheatedinsealedvessel Should I reenter it here, or is the link enough?

Question: what does the pressure gauge read? By what technique can one calculate what pressure the gauge now reads?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, I think you want to loo at the vapor pressure of water at \(101^\circ\text C\). But I'm not sure if that applies when the container is small.. I learned about vapor pressure in chemistry. So if you don't get many responses in the physics section, maybe you can check with the chemistry section! Best of luck to you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually  and it makes sense  the closed container is necessary for an easier model. http://hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/hbase/kinetic/vappre.html That link also has a table of values for water, and there's a value at \(104^\circ\text C\). Anyway... Neglecting gravity, the vapor pressure would also be the water pressure, since the pressure will be distributed equally throughout the container.
