Humidity in room under 50%. If it's plywood sub floor moisture level should be below 12 the lower and drier you can get it the better

Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. Humidity is usually expressed as a percentage of the maximum that the air could hold at that temperature.

By marriage. Humidity and temperature are related. The maximum absolute humidity increases with temperature and pressure (up to the boiling point).

Relative humidity expresses a percentage of humidity in the air to the maximum amount of humidity that could be in the air. For example: when the temperature rises the air will be able to hold much more humidity so the relative humidity will drop.

Humidity describes the amount of water vapour in the air, whereas realtive humidity represents the percentage of water vapour in the air compared to the maximum amount that could exist in that air.

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.

Relative humidity is ratio between the current and maximum humidity possible in the air. This varies based on the air temperature, pressure, and other atmospheric conditions.

A relative humidity of 60% means that a volume of air contains 60% of its maximum capacity of water, maximum capacity defined as being without condensation.

The relative humidity (RH) in a kitchen can be measured by using a humidity gauge. A maximum indoor relative humidity of 55% RH may be acceptable, but a 50% RH better is better.

They compare because relative humidity measures the maximum amount of moisture in the air.

The short answer is the maximum percentage of humidity in the air at any temperature is 100%. The percentage of humidity or relative humidity of air is the percent of the maximum humidity or amount of water that the air can hold at any given temperature. Therefore if the relative humidity is 80 per cent at 20 degrees and then the air cools off to 18 degrees the relative humidity goes up even though the amount of humidity or water in the air stays the same. If the temperature continues to drop the relative humidity will continue to rise. Since cool air can hold less air than warm air the relative humidity will eventually reach 100%. If the temperature continues to fall the relative humidity will remain at 100% and water will come out of the air as precipitation.

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.

Humidity is a measure of the amount of water in the air, compared to the maximum possible amount that could be dissolved.

Absolute humidity refers to the amount of water vapor that exists in a given volume of air at a given time. Relative humidity is absolute humidity relative to the maximum humidity for the current temperature.

Relative humidity is the percentage of water vapor in the air compared to the maximum amount of water vapor that air can contain at a particular temperature. Relative humidity can be measured by an instrument called a psychrometer.

As a percentage. It is the water vapor content of the air compared to the normal maximum content at that temperature. (For supercooled air, the humidity is more than 100% for the temperature.)

Relative humidity is a comparison of the amount of moisture that air is holding compared to the maximum amount it could hold at a given temperature. If it's holding all that it can, the relative humidity is 100%.

At a certain temperature, a certain gas can contain a certain amount of moisture. The humidity can be expressed in how much of this maximum is actually achieved, e.g. 70% of what is possible.

The word humidity does have a plural, humidities, but the state of "being humid" itself is uncountable. What we actually measure as humidity is the relative humidity, comparing it to the maximum possible at that pressure and temperature. Referring to these measurements as "relative humidities" would not be grammatically incorrect, but you could also use the singular just as well. ("We're going to compare the relative humidity in Texas and Oklahoma.")

Yes. It is the percentage of the maximum water vapor content for a given temperature.

It is the maximum humidity, expressed as the saturation point for a given temperature.

100%. The dew point of air is the temperature at which the air will become saturated. Saturation describes the condition of the air when it contains the maximum possible amount of water vapor. Relative humidity describes the percentage of the maximum possible water vapor content that the air holds at a given time (For example, the air may be able to hold 10 g/m3 of water vapor at a given temperature. It it contains 3 g/m3, it contains 30% of the maximum, so its relative humidity is 30%). When air reaches its dew point, it has become saturated. This means that the air now holds the maximum amount of water vapor possible -- 100% of the maximum. Therefore, relative humidity at the dew point is always 100%.
