Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a situation like this:

Airpsychrometricschangingconditionsfog.gif


Where C is a air stream from a pipe, and A is the sky. Droplet will be made, and there will be fog.

Now I have to calculate the amount of water leaving the air.

In my book I found this equation:

Qwater = Qdry.air.C * (xA - xC)

But do it have to be point C and A? Why not the two points where RH=100% ?

And how do I know how much water that there will be in the air as fog, and how much will raining down?

Thanks for the reply.

Here is the cooling processes into the diagram, A-B and A-C. If you look at the two processes, will they produce the same amount of condense?
