## On a certain day the temperature is 25 .0 ° C and the relative humidity is 90.0%. How many grams of water must condense out of each cubic meter of air if the temperature falls to 15 .0 ° C ? Such a drop in temperature can, thus, produce heavy dew or fog.

Expert Solution
To determine

The vapor density at temperature 15°C.

### Explanation of Solution

Given data:

T=15°C

Percent relative humidity = 90%

Formula used:

Percentage relative humidity = vapordensitysaturationvapordensity×100

Calculation:

Percentage relative humidity at 15°C is given by,

Percentage relative humidity = vapordensitysaturation
