10/28/97A F Emery2 Psychrometrics The study of a mixture of dry air and water vapor Although precise thermodynamic relations are available for moist air, we will treat moist air as a mixture of ideal gases

10/28/97A F Emery3 Why study psychrometrics? The degree of moisture has a strong effect on 1) heating, cooling, and comfort 2) insulation, roofing, stability and deformation of building materials 3) sound absorption, odor levels, ventilation 4) industry and agriculture

10/28/97A F Emery8 IMPORTANT PROPERTIES Humidity ratio, W Humidity ratio is the mass of water vapor per unit mass of dry air. Units are kg/kg

10/28/97A F Emery9 IMPORTANT PROPERTIES Saturated Humidity ratio, Saturation is when the air contains the maximum amount of water vapor at its current temperature. The saturation pressure is taken from the steam tables at the moist air temperature.

10/28/97A F Emery10 IMPORTANT PROPERTIES Relative humidity, Relative humidity is defined as the ratio of the partial pressure of the water vapor to the saturation pressure at the same temperature

10/28/97A F Emery11 IMPORTANT PROPERTIES Degree of saturation, Degree of saturation is the ratio of the amount of water contained in the moist air to that which would be contained if the air were saturated

10/28/97A F Emery12 IMPORTANT TEMPERATURES Dry Bulb Dew Point = temperature of moist air at rest = temperature at which the water vapor will condense out of the moist air. It is the temperature for which W is the saturated humidity ratio

10/28/97A F Emery13 IMPORTANT TEMPERATURES Adiabatic Saturation Temperature, it is the temperature at which liquid water would evaporate into the moist air without any heat addition to the system satisfies

10/28/97A F Emery14 IMPORTANT TEMPERATURES Wet Bulb Temperature, Is the temperature reached by evaporative cooling. A cotton sock is wrapped around a thermometer, saturated with distilled water. The water evaporates and the resulting temperature is called the wet bulb temperature. It is a close approximation to
