```					Psychrometric or Humidity Chart

Mixtures of Air & Water Vapor in Gas Phase
Treat Air as Pseudo Single Component

Humidity (Kg H2O/Kg Bone Dry Air) = f(Dry Bulb & Wet Bulb Temperature)
Steady State Temp when thermometer end is surrounded by moist wick & spun in humid air

How to Determine Humidity?
Select Dry Bulb Temp.
Move up to Wet Bulb Temp
How to determine Dew Pt. Temp. oC?
Select Dry Bulb Temp.
Move up to Wet Bulb Temp
Move to Left to Saturation Curve
Read Dew Pt. On T db axis
Use Wet Bulb & Dry Bulb Temp to locate point within Chart
Interpolate using the Relative Humidity Lines that bracket the above point
Humidity Chart & Volume Calculations

Humid Volume=Volume occupied by 1 Kg of B.D. Air
& the Water that Accompanies it

Look for a few lines with Large negative slope

Humidity Chart & Enthalpies
Enthalpy of Humid Air                   Enthalpy of Humid Air
Reference Conditions for Figure 8.4-1   Reference Conditions for Figure 8.5-1
Liquid Water at 0OC & 1 am              Liquid Water at 32OF & 1 am
Dry Air at 0oC & 1 atm                  Dry Air at 0oF & 1 atm

Be careful- Cannot use these tables interchangeably with Steam tables
Unless make adjustments for Different Reference State for Zero Enthalpy
To read & Determine Humid Enthalpy
Find Humidity Point based on Dry & Wet Bulb Temperatures
Follow the Constant Wet Bulb Temperature Line Up & to the Left to Saturation Curve
