The flashcards below were created by user happymonkeylover on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. Define relative humidity
    • ratio of airs actual water vapor
    • Total water vapor
  2. What does dewpoint mean and in wheat places does it occur?
    Temperature where air needs
  3. Understand the difference between dry and wet adiabatic cooling
    • Dry- Unsaturated air heats and cools at 10 c per 1000 meters
    • Wet- slower rate of cooling release of latent heat at 5-9 c per 1000 meters
  4. What is required for water vapor to condense
    Air must be at 100% humidity (saturated)
  5. Understand why when water vapor content remains the same, does lowering air temperature increase or decrease relative humidity
    Increase
