Homework Help: Geology Help

  1. Oct 4, 2006 #1
    My brain is fried on other subjects. Help me!

    Given: Max Water Vapor Capacity for Air @ 70 degrees F (21 deg. C)= 8g/cubic foot.

    At 60% relative humidity, the actual water vapor content is 4.8g/cubic foot.

    If the room temperature were lowered to 60 degrees F (16 deg. C) at which the max water vapor capacity is 5.8g/cubic foot, calculate the new relative humidity.


    help me get started here........

    I would start by looking at where 60% (0.60) comes from -- then it will be easy to calculate from there.
