How do I create a highly conductive vapor cloud

This is a bad idea. Mercury as a liquid or plasma is conductive, but not as a vapor. Light a candle and blow it out. The smoke will be conductive.

Total pressure of saturated solution of air and Benzene

The vapor pressure of a volatile substance in its saturated state does not change with change in volume at constant temperature. It is like when volume decreases isothermally, some of the saturated ...

Why do we have water vapor at room temperature and atmospheric pressure when water is a compressed liquid at these conditions?

Why do we have water vapor at room temperature and atmospheric pressure when water is a compressed liquid at these conditions? If we kept vapor partial pressure below saturated vapor pressure, we ...

Why do we have water vapor at room temperature and atmospheric pressure when water is a compressed liquid at these conditions?

I think that it is a good question: if you have ice in liquid water, even at 1°C (just above the melting point), all the ice will disappear and you will have 100% liquid. Then why do you have always ...

Why do we have water vapor at room temperature and atmospheric pressure when water is a compressed liquid at these conditions?

Think of molecules of water liquid escaping into vapor, and molecules of water vapor condensing into liquid. Both processes occur simultaneously, and an equilibrium is reached in a closed system. The ...
