Textbook Problem

On a day when the air temperature is 80°F, the relative humidity is measured to be 79%. How many degrees would the air temperature have to be lowered for the relative humidity to be 100%?

To determine
The change in the air temperature to make relative humidity 100% .

Explanation

Given info: The air temperature is 80 °F . The measured relative humidity is 79% .

Explanation:

Wet-bulb depression is the difference in the dry-bulb and wet-bulb reading.

The expression for the wet-bulb depression is as follows,

ΔT=Dry bulb readingWet bulb reading

Here,

ΔT is the wet-bulb depression

Refer table H.1 in Appendix H provided in the textbook to find the relative humidity.

When the Dry bulb reading is 80 °F and the relative humidity is 79% , the wet-bulb depression is °F .

Substitute °F for ΔT and 80 °F for Dry bulb reading
