Vapor pressure

1. The pressure of a vapor corresponding to a given temperature where the liquid and vapor are in equilibrium. Vapor pressure increases with temperature. 2. The pressure (for a given temperature) at which a liquid is in equilibrium with its vapor. As a liquid is heated, its vapor pressure will increase until it equals the total pressure of the gas above the liquid; at this point the liquid will begin to boil.
