4.1 FUNDAMENTALS:
What do all VAPOR PRESSURE OF WATER
these lines
mean!?
Vapor Pressure of Water Vapor?
Vapor Pressure of Water?

Relationship
Would the
between
vapor
pressure
pressure of
and
the water
temperature
changes
with phase?
with total
pressure of
the system?

4.2 FUNDAMENTALS:
HUMIDITY AND HUMIDITY CHART
Are percentage humidity
and percentage relative
Recall……
humidity the same? So what you mean by
, relative humidity!?

Using
= × 100%
humidity!

Using partial
= × 100%
pressures!

## Both are used to described the

amount of saturation of air-
water vapor mixture!

Example 9.3-1:
The air in a room is at 26.7 0C
and a pressure of 101.325 kPa
contains water vapor with
partial pressure pA = 2.76 kPa.

Calculate:
a) Humidity, H
b) Saturation Humidity, HS
c) Percentage humidity, HP
d) Percentage relative
humidity, HR

4.2 FUNDAMENTALS:
Recall…… HUMIDITY AND HUMIDITY CHART
∗, The temperature at saturation is called:
“Dew point / dew point temperature!”

## “But how do we know if it is saturated?”

18.02 1
= × ×
− 1 28.97 “Check the saturation vapor pressure
at the given temperature!”
Illustration of the idea:
In a warm evening (33 0C),
the actual water vapor pressure is measured as 4.50 kPa,
while the saturation water vapor pressure is at 5.034 kPa
Thus, no condensation and hence, the dew point is lower than 33 0C!

## At night (24 0C), the air is cooled down,

while the actual water partial pressure is the same as in the evening.
At night, the saturation water vapor pressure is lowered to 2.985 kPa.
Now, the actual water vapor pressure > saturation water pressure!
Condensation must occur!
Dew point is the temperature when the very first dew is condensed!

Example 9.3-3
An air stream at 87.8 0C having a
humidity H = 0.030 kg H2O/kg dry
air is contacted in an adiabatic
saturator with water. It is cooled
and humidified to 90% saturation.

## a) What are the final values of H

and T?
b) For 100% saturation, what
would be the values of H and
T?

## 4.4 WET-BULB TEMPERATURE

Consider a gas humidified by water using a wick:
“… wet-bulb temperature is the steady-state non-
equilibrium temperature reached when a small
amount of water is contacted under adiabatic
conditions by a continuous stream of gas…”

## For Wet-bulb temperature,

Water cooled to TW!

= “Quite” similar to

At steady state, Wick cooled to TW! equation!
water evaporates Where: *Only for water!
into the gas stream h = convective heat transfer coefficient
MB = molecular mass of air
ky = mass transfer coefficient
Latent heat of evaporation
Why are the T and H
= convective heat flowing
remained unchanged?

dry bulb temperature of 60 0C is
passed over a wet bulb. The wet
bulb temperature obtained is 29.5

mixture?
