Answer:

In fact, it will have no effect.

Explanation:

#"Vapour pressure"# is a function of temperature. Water has a definite and measurable vapour pressure. Of course, at #100# #""^@C#, its vapour pressure is equal to #1# #atm#. Why?

So in your example, if the temperature is constant, the vapour pressure is also a constant.
