Vapor Pressure

The pressure exerted when the liquid and vapor are in dynamic equilibrium. If a substance were put in a closed container, some of it would vaporize. The pressure in the space above the liquid would increase from zero and eventually stabilize at a constant value – the vapor pressure. Liquids that aren’t in a closed container still have a vapor pressure.
