The dry bulb temperature and dew point of ambient air were found
to be 302 K (29oC) and 291 K(18oC) respectively, Barometer reads 100
kPa. Calculate:

(a) The absolute molal humidity,
(b)The absolute humidity,
(c) % RH,
(d)% Saturation,
(e) Humid heat and
(f) Humid volume

Data: Vapour pressure of water at 291 K = 2.0624 kPa vapour pressure
of water at 302 K=4.004 kPa.

Solution:

Air-water vapour mixture with DB = 302 K and DP = 291 K.

At DP, partial pressure of water in air is equal to vapour pressure of water.

PA = partial pressure of water vapour in air = 2.0624 kPa
