QUESTION: 1

### Atmospheric air from 40°C and 60 percent relative humidity can be brought to 20°C and 60 percent relative humidity by [1990]

Solution:

Cooling and dehumidification process,

QUESTION: 2

### If moist air is cooled by sensible heat removal, which of the following is true? [1991]

Solution:

Sensible cooling process

QUESTION: 3

### For air at a given temperature, as the relative humidity is increased isothermally, [2001]

Solution:

Relative humidity is increased isothermally.

QUESTION: 4

For air with a relative humidity of 80%

[2003]

Solution:

QUESTION: 5

Dew point temperature of air at one atmospheric pressure (1.013 bar) is 18°C. The air dry bulb temperature is 30°C. The saturation pressure of water at 18°C and 30°C are 0.02062 bar and 0.04241 bar respectively.
The specific heat of air and water vapour respeetively are 1.005 and 1.88 kJ/kgK and the latent heat of vaporization water of 0°C is 2500 kJ/kg. The specific humidity (kg/kg of dry air) and enthalpy (kJ/kg of dry air) of this moist air respectively, are

[2005]

Solution:

Given: p = 1.013 bar, (pv)tdp = 0.02062
Specific humidity =

= 63.15 kJ/kg of dry air.
Alternative method
pv = Saturation pressure = 0.02062 bar pa = Partial pressure of air = 0.04241 bar
td = Dry bulb temperature = 30º
tw = Wet bulb temperature = 18º Specific humidity,

= 1.005 × 30 + 0.0129 × 2500
+ 0.01292 × 1.88(30 – 18)
= 63.15 kJ/kg of dry air.

QUESTION: 6

For a typical sample of ambient air (at 30°C, 75% relative humidity and standard atmospheric pressure), the amount of moisture in kg per kg of dry air will be approximately.

[2007]

Solution:

Given data:
Dry bulb temperature:
Tdb = 35°C
Relative humidity
φ = 75° = 0.75
At 35°C, Ps = .05628 bar

Specific humidity,

QUESTION: 7

A building has to be maintained at 21 °C (dry bulb) and 14.5°C(wet bulb). The dew point temperature under these conditions is 10.17°C.The outside temperature is –23°C (dry bulb) and the internal and external surface heat transfer coefficients are 8 W/m2K and 23 W/ m2K respectively. If the building wall has a thermal conductivity of 1.2 W/mK, the minimum thickness (in m) of the wall required to prevent condensation is

[2008]

Solution:

Given data:
Dry bulb temperature:
Tdb = 35°C
Relative humidity
φ = 75° = 0.75
At 35°C, Ps = .05628 bar

Specific humidity,

QUESTION: 8

Moist air at a pressure of 100 kPa is compressed to 500 kPa and then cooled to 35°C in an aftercooler. The air at the entry to the aftercooler is unsaturated and becomes just saturated at the exit of the aftercooler. The saturation pressure of water at 35°C is 5.628 kPa. The partial pressure of water vapour (in kPa) in the moist air entering the compressor is closest to

[2010]

Solution:

Assuming that compression is isentropicin air compressors, the process can be described on the T - s diagram. The process in the intercooler is constant pressure
p2 = p3
But p2 = 5p1

QUESTION: 9

A moist air sample has dry bulb temperature of 30°C and specific humidity of 11.5 g water vapour per kg dry air. Assume molecular weight of air as 28.93. If the saturation vapour pressure of water at 30°C is 4.24 kPa and the total pressure is 90 kPa, then the relative humidity (in %) of air sample is

[2011]

Solution:

Given : DBT = 30°C, w = 11.5 g/kg
∴ Relative humidity

QUESTION: 10

If a mass of moist air in an airtight vessel is heated to a higher temperature, then
