    If steam is hotter than boiling water,

    So can we say that cold air/breeze gives more chill then cold water?

    (when we have physical contact with them)

    You're overstaying your welcome with these lame questions, precious.

    No need to leave the forum. Just try to ask reasonable science questions. This one is incomprehensible. Steam is not hotter than boiling water. The saturated steam is the same temperature. Superheated steam is hotter but this has nothing to do with a cool breeze.

    Harold, as I said to Meteor Wayne on another thread, without knowing Precious's age and educational background any judgement as to the quality of the questions is precipitate. Sometimes in naivety comes a perspective on issues that is refreshing. Perhaps we should welcome that.

    And this comment from the Finger Prince on another thread:
    Precious has talent for asking provocative questions, well done.

    Nice work there Harold.

    Not.

    I tend to agree with what Meteor Wayne said on that other thread.
    If a Forum member feels some of his/her posts are being criticised unfairly that individual is perfectly free to mention age, first language, and level of education. In other words a member can, as you suggested yourself, reveal more of his/her background rather than simply vanish because the value of some posts are being questioned.

    While they are free to do this there will be some members, precisely because of their age, education or language, do not see this as an option. Precious's questions were often frustrating, but between 1/3 and 1/2 generated some interesting subsequent posts. It appears that the hostility of Harold and others has driven this one member away. At the same time we tolerate idiots with perpetual motion machines, or a grasp of evolution little better than that of a small gallstone. I think the balance is wrong.

    sorry sir, I took a quick decision and left forum. but later i realized it was my loss. please forgive me. i shall not ask any more question without my groundwork.

    In this question i tried to compare two thingsif hot air (of course steam) is hotter than boiling water as it possess more energy.
    my other point was air containing water in winter (breeeze or whatever it is called) is cooler than ICE.

    actually i think superficially on Science and i know it is my drawback. the members who helped me or criticized me I am really obliged to them for their time.

    My education: I am an MSc in Economics. so in strict sense i am not the one who should meddle in Natural Science affairs here on this forum. But my curiosity puts me on this path. so it is highly awkward for you to bear me. and i am really not precious here and i want to apologize to all moderators, members and all visitors of this forum

    My age: 24 years. so still i have to go through long experience to touch your expertice.

    Yes, a breeze containing (cool) water is cooler than a breeze devoid of any water! because: a) water molecule has a high heat-capacity (meaning: it can absorb more heat per each increase in degree Celcius), and b) water vapor absorbs heat-rays/infrared-rays more readily than air. -Therefore: water in a breeze will absorb more heat from your body than an air in the breeze devoid of water, but you must also remember that: a dry air will also absorb more water vapor from your body than wet air: thus a dry air can also cool your body by helping your sweat evaporate.

    I think steam felt "hotter" than a boiling water but both has same temperature. This is strange because in order for a steam to condensate into a fluid on our skin it has to release additional heat to make it non-gasseous (but yet it is still same temperature) :/ ....

    Welcome back, and I apologize for snapping at you.

    Steam (at atmospheric pressure) is the same temperature as boiling water, but does have more energy. Does this mean that it feels hotter when you put your hand into it? I don't think it does. Both would be very hot, but I believe that the rate of heat transfer would be greater in the boiling water. This is because the water is denser, and there are more water molecules in contact with your hand.

    In the same way, I believe that ice would feel cooler than cold air. There is a layer of air that adheres to your skin, and insulates it. This insulation would not be present when your skin is in contact with the ice.
