Try yourself:Atmospheric air from 40°C and 60 percent relative humidity can be brought to 20°C and 60 percent relative humidity by

[1990]

Try yourself:If moist air is cooled by sensible heat removal, which of the following is true?

[1991]

Try yourself:For air at a given temperature, as the relative humidity is increased isothermally,

[2001]

Try yourself:For air with a relative humidity of 80%

[2003]

Try yourself: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]

Try yourself: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]

Try yourself: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]

Try yourself: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]

Try yourself: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]

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

[2012]

Try yourself:A room contains 35 kg of dry air and 0.5 kg of water vapor. The total pressure and temperature of air in the room are 100 kPa and 25°C respectively. Given that the saturation pressure for water at 25°C, is 3.17 kPa, the relative humidity of the air in the room is

[2013]

Try yourself:The pressure, dry bulb temperature and relative humidity of air in a room are 1 bar, 30°C and 70%, respectively. If the saturated steam pressure at 30°C is 4.25 kPa, the specific humidity of the room air in kg of water vapour/kg dry air is
