Define relative humidity
- ratio of airs actual water vaporTotal water vapor
What does dewpoint mean and in wheat places does it occur?
Temperature where air needs
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
What is required for water vapor to condense
Air must be at 100% humidity (saturated)
Understand why when water vapor content remains the same, does lowering air temperature increase or decrease relative humidity
