Answer:

How else but by measurement...?

Explanation:

And since vapour pressure is a function of temperature, there are usually tables that quote the vapour pressure of a given liquid at a given temperature. For water, the so-called #"saturated vapour pressure"# is readily available. At #100# #""^@C#, #P_"SVP"=1*atm#. Why should this be so?
