I got confused for this two things, the first pressure is the pure water vapor in a certain temperture, and the second vapor partial pressure is the water vapor existed along with other gases, so my question is,

Is the maximum vapor partial pressure in the air the same thing as the pure water vapor pressure, the first one is among different gases, and the second is between liquid/gas phases.
