Psychrometrics - Psychrometric Charts - Locating Parameters On Chart
... * Dry bulb temperature These lines are drawn straight, not always parallel to each other, and slightly inclined from the vertical position ... The dew point temperature is equal to the fully saturated dry bulb or wet bulb temperatures ... The saturation curve is at 100% RH, while dry air is at 0% RH ...
Convective Instability
... In meteorology, convective instability or stability of an air mass refers to its ability to resist vertical motion ... In an unstable atmosphere, vertical air movements (such as in orographic lifting, where an air mass is displaced upwards as it is blown by wind up the rising slope of a mountain range) tend to become larger ...

The dry air ultimately had a smaller impact on the intensification than previously estimated ... and ragged, and the cyclone gradually weakened due to cooler water temperatures and drier air as it approached the Arabian Peninsula ...
Humidity - Air Density and Volume
... Therefore, gas volume may alternatively be expressed as the dry volume, excluding the humidity content ... Humid air is less dense than dry air because a molecule of water (M ≈ 18 u ) is less massive than either a molecule of nitrogen (M ≈ 28) or a molecule of oxygen (M ≈ 32) ... About 78% of the molecules in dry air are nitrogen (N2) ...

Famous quotes containing the words air and/or dry:

    And ‘tis my faith that every flower
    Enjoys the air it breathes.

    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
