Unformatted text preview: d. Saturated vapor pressure: when air is saturated at a specific temperature e. Mixing ratio: actual amount of water vapor in a parcel of air f. 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...
