*How does the viscosity of liquid water vary with temperature ?
What is the equation to calculate the viscosity of water ?*

μ = exp(-3.7188+578.919/(-137.546+T))

With

μ = viscosity (mPa.s)

T = temperature (K)

A = -3.7188

B = 578.919

C = -137.546

Range of validity : [273 ; 373] K

*How does the thermal conductivity of liquid water vary with
temperature ? What is the equation to calculate the thermal
conductivity of water ?*

λ'=-1.48445+4.12292*T'-1.63866*T'2 [NIST]

With

λ' = λ(T)/λ(298.15)

λ(298.15) = 0.6065 W.m^{-1}.K^{-1}

λ(T) = thermal conductivity of water at temperature T (W.m^{-1}.K-1)

T' = T/298.15

T = temperature of water (K)

Range of validity : [274 ; 370] K

*How does the vapor pressure of water vary with temperature ?
What is the equation to calculate the vapor pressure of water ?*

log(Ps) = 8.07131 - 1730.63 / (233.426 + T)

With

Ps = Saturation pressure (mmHg) - note, to switch to Pa, multiply by 133.322 Pa/mmHgT = temperature (°c)

A = 8.07131

B = 1730.63

C = 233.426

Range of validity : [1 ; 100] °c
