Chapter 7.1 Humidity I.a. Humidity : water vapor in the air; temperature determines capacity of air to hold water vapor I.a. Relative Humidity : ratio, expressed as percentage, of amount of water vapor in air to maximum water vapor that is possible at a given temperature I.a.i. Relative Humidity= (actual water vapor in air/max. water vapor possible at temperature) X 100 I.a.i. Saturation equilibrium when the evaporation rate is equal to the condensation rate I.a.i. Inversely related to temperature- as temperature rises, relative humidity falls since maximum water vapor possible is greater in warm air (think of Figure 7.8 where constant circles of water vapor are in different size circles of warm and cold air) I.a.i.1. Example: morning has more dew on cars and grass I.a. Saturation : happens when air is at 100% relative humidity when the rate of evaporation and condensation reach equilibrium (net transfer of water molecules) I.a.i. Indicates any further addition of water vapor or decrease in

    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.
