This is called relative humidity. It is the ratio between the actual humidity, and the humidity for saturated air - that is, the maximum amount of water air can hold. This saturation point is dependent on temperature.

There is no exact answer, the humidity can be anywhere between 0-100

In Meteorology: a condition in the atmosphere corresponding to 100 percent relative humidity.

It means that only 20% of the humidity of 100% is in the air.

Sweating is no longer efficient near 100 percent humidity.

the humidity is 100% u do not put cheese in a fridge!!

If the relative humidity is at 75%, the air is not holding it's maximuim amount of water vapor. If it was holding its maxumum amount it would be 100%. The formula for that is:Actual water vapor_______________ * 100 Equals the percentTotal water vapor

As humid air with high relative humidity is changed such that humidity increases.(could be by many mechanism), the air becomes saturated at 100% relative humidity.

oo thats on my science worksheet too. I can't find it anywhere. ugghh

It does in certain parts of the atmosphere, but not at the surface.

when the Humidity is at 100 percent the raindrops are a little thicker then potato wedges because of condensation.

its humid as it gets closer to 100%, then it is called saturated at 100%

Relative humidity rarely reaches 100% humidity when air is polluted. This is do to emissions of carbon dioxide and sulfates, and is known as haze.

relative humidity is 100 percent.

That would be "dewpoint"...When the air temperature falls to the dewpoint (or dewpoint rises to the air temperature), then you have 100% relative humidity.

Means Most of the Earth is Mostly Made Up Of That kind of Humidity . Obv.

Percent means out of a 100

What can form at 100% humidity, what forms on the ground is frost, all frost mainly is would be frozen dew. Related link will show you more.

A snowstorm is characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 56 kilometers per hour. Humidity during snowstorms is near 100 percent.

The relative humidity when it is raining is generally considered to be 100% since if it was lower the rain would evaporate before it reach the ground.

No, it is always less than one hundred percent.

"Percent" and "of 100" mean the same thing so 20 is 20% of 100

When the relative humidity reaches 100%, the dew point and air temperature are exactly the same and the weather is extremely humid and it is possible that it will be raining
