10/4 Moisture - Moisture: water exists in three phases Vapor, liquid, solid - Energy is absorbed and given off when changing phases A. Processes where heat absorbed by a substance and taken away from environment - Melting: solid to liquid - Evaporation: liquid to vapor - Sublimation: solid to vapor B. Processes where energy is given up by a substance and added to the environment - Condensation: liquid to solid - Freezing: liquid to solid - Deposition: vapor to solid I. Moisture variables a. Dew point temperature: temperature at which you cool air, saturation will occur b. Wet bulb temperature: lowest temp obtained by evaporating water to the air c. Vapor pressure: part of atmosphere pressure attributed to water vapor

Saturated mixing ratio: saturated air at a specific temp II. Relative Humidity: ratio of amount of vapor actually in the air compared to the max amount required for saturation at that given temp III. Hydrophobic Particles: no affinity IV. Hydroscopic particles: particles with a special affinity for converting water vapor to liquid drops V. Adiabatic process: without the transfer of heat VI. Diabatic process: heat is added or removed from the air...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
