The amount of water vapor present in air is called humidity.

The amount of water present in air as a percent of the maximum amount that the air can hold at that particular temperature is called relative humidity.

The higher the relative humidity is the lower rate of evaporation.

Relative humidity is the amount of moisture that the air can hold. The lower the relative humidity, the faster that evaporation will take place. Low relative humidity equals dry air.

They can vary independently - BUT, if the temp goes up AND the amount of moisture in the air stays constant, THEN the relative humidity goes down.

Relative humidity is directly related to the amount of water vapor in air, and that's the relationship. The more water vapor that is in the air, the higher the relative humidity at a given temperature.

The relationship between humidity and precipitation is that humidity the amount of moisture in the air and precipitation is any type of water that falls from the sky.

why is relative humidity more useful than humidity?

Humidity is the amount of water vapor present in the air. The relative humidity is the measure of the amount of water vapor present in the air compared to the amount needed for saturation.

Find the difference between dry-bulb and wet-bulb temperatures, and use that number on a relative humidity chart.

Humidity is the amount of water vapor at any given time and relative humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air compared to the greatest amount it can hold at that air temperature.

30 to 50% of Relative humidity - the relative part of relative humidity being relative to the temperature.

Relative humidity is percentage of water relative to how much air can hold if saturated Absolute humidity is actual amount of moisture in the air

The relative humidity can increase it by letting more water into the air. The relative humidity can hold more than regular humidity.

Relative humidity becomes the ratio between the actual amount of water vapor present to the capacity that the air has at a particular moment. Just to be an optimist, if the glass is half-filled, the relative humidity is 50 percent. If the glass is three-quarters filled, the relative humidity is 75 percent.

Average Relative Humidity: Baton Rouge Relative Humidity (Morning) 89% Baton Rouge Relative Humidity (Afternoon) 62%

the relationship between relative age and the principle of superposition is look it up yourself!

According to ASHRAE Handbook - HVAC Systems and Equipment, relative humidity in habitable spaces should be maintained between 30 and 60%.
