# Steam temps at altitude

Can anyone point me to a quick table showing the relationship between steam pressure and temperature at one mile above sea level?

@DanHolohan That is a good one, I'll save it to the library.
@SeanBeans Here are a few more. The air density chart will keep you out of trouble running the numbers for forced air heating an cooling. The gas deration is a must if you size gas lines or clock gas meters.

I was taught to use "absolute" pressure when using steam tables. Here are ambient pressures at various altitudes.
Sea Level = 14.7 PSI
5000 feet = 12.2 PSI
6000 feet = 11.8 PSI
7000 feet = 11.3 PSI
8000 feet = 10.9 PSI
9000 feet = 10.5 PSI
10000 feet = 10.1 PSI
