  Vapor \Va"por\, n. [OE. vapour, OF. vapour, vapor, vapeur, F.
     vapeur, L. vapor; probably for cvapor, and akin to Gr. ?
     smoke, ? to breathe forth, Lith. kvepti to breathe, smell,
     Russ. kopote fine soot. Cf. Vapid.] [Written also
     vapour.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. (Physics) Any substance in the gaseous, or aeriform,
        state, the condition of which is ordinarily that of a
        liquid or solid.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The term vapor is sometimes used in a more extended
           sense, as identical with gas; and the difference
           between the two is not so much one of kind as of
           degree, the latter being applied to all permanently
           elastic fluids except atmospheric air, the former to
           those elastic fluids which lose that condition at
           ordinary temperatures. The atmosphere contains more or
           less vapor of water, a portion of which, on a reduction
           of temperature, becomes condensed into liquid water in
           the form of rain or dew. The vapor of water produced by
           boiling, especially in its economic relations, is
           called steam.
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 Vapor is any substance in the gaseous condition
                 at the maximum of density consistent with that
                 condition. This is the strict and proper meaning
                 of the word vapor.                 --Nichol.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. In a loose and popular sense, any visible diffused
        substance floating in the atmosphere and impairing its
        transparency, as smoke, fog, etc.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The vapour which that fro the earth glood [glided].

        [1913 Webster]

                                                    14.
