Answer ( 1 )

  1. The steam contains a higher energy than boiling water because a phase change from boiling water just to make steam takes a great deal of energy to convert boiling water to steam.
    Thus, the resulting steam from the boiling water contains that high amount energy, much greater than the boiling water and it is that energy resulting from a phase change of boiling water to steam that burns one so much more severely with steam than with boiling water.
