Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Vapor pressure is proportional to temperature. that means that as the temperature increases, so does the vapor pressure and think of it this way. The vapor pressure goes up because there are more particles that can escape to the gas phase. I'm not exactly sure but I think the second jar with the lower water level may have the higher vapor pressure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0turns out the volume of the water doesn't affect vapor pressure. As @Photon336 said, vapor pressure has a strong relationship to temperature https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qgg2A7rKug
