AE202 Name______________________ Lecture 2.1 Psychrometry Date_______________________ Reading: MEEB (10 th Edition) Section 8.12 Psychrometry Definition Psychrometric Chart 1. Dry Bulb T db – air temperature 2. Wet Bulb T wb – temperature of wet bulb thermometer 3. Saturation Line Points at which air cannot hold additional moisture 4. Relative Humidity (%) At a specific temperature, the amount of moisture in the air as a percentage of the maximum or saturation amount 5. Dew Point (°F) Given a psychrometric condition (T db , T wb ), the temperature (lower) at which dew will form 6. Specific Volume (v) The reciprocal of density (ft 3 /lb) 7. Humidity Ratio (W) (lb/lb) Amount of moisture by weight within a given weight of air 8. Enthalpy (h) (BTU/lb) Total heat (sensible and latent) in the air-moisture mixture
