Why would contact with steam at 100 C produce a more severe burn than contact with liquid water at the same temperature?



 In order to form steam, water is needed to boil. In order to boil water, it has to be drastically heated to a much higher temperature. Once boiled, the water will begin to vaporize into steam. As compared to the original liquid phase of water, steam is a much more heated gas version of water that also has much stronger intermolecular forces.
