1 Example 5 n Estimate the change in air density due to a 1  increase in  temperatu5e (for dry air), and a 1% increase in relative humidity,  both at 20 . n Solutions: Differentiating the natural log of Eq. (1), we find  d dM dP dT M P T ρ = + -

2 n At constant M and P we have  n The average molecular weight of air is given by: Mavg = Ywater Mwater + (1 - Ywater) Mair        = Mair + Ywater (Mwater - Mair) where ywater is the mol fraction of water vapor. o 1 = 0.0034 (20
