Saturation vapor pressure (Pws) is the equilibrium water vapor pressure in a closed chamber containing liquid water. It is a function only of temperature, and it indicates the maximum amount of water that can exist in the vapor state.

Water vapor saturation pressure (Pws) is calculated with the following 2 formulas:

Θ = T i = 0 3 C i T i [ h P a ]
