the ratio of the amount of water vapor actually in the air compared to the maximum amount of water vapor required for saturation at that particular temperature
relative humidity = water vapor content / water vapor capacity
a measure of how close the air is to saturation, described as a percent
relative humidty = actual vapor pressure / saturation vapor pressure x 100
RH < 100% = subsaturated
RH = 100% , saturated
RH > 100% = super saturated
change water vapor content, change air temperature.
RH = actual vapor pressure / saturation vapor pressure x 100
Words From Our Students
"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards, and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"
Alice, Arizona State University
"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"
Tim, University of Florida
"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"
Jennifer, Rutgers University
"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
