I know that this is a bit off the beaten track, (its a physics question) but I'm trying to confirm the results of a piece of software I've written.

If you have a fan delivering air at 1000 cu m/hr from an ambient source at 27C Dry bulb and 24.3C wetbulb (approx 80%RH i.e. 18 gmswater/ Kg air) and you heat and then spray the resultant air with water to ensure its at 65C and 100% RH - what is the take up of water into the air, assuming it all gets removed? i.e. how many KG / hr.

This sounds complicated but it really isnt. I just need someone to confirm my answer.
Thanks,
Chris

Sorry, but that's not how it works here. We don't just hand out answers, we help people find them. So as a starting point, we need what you have so far.

OK - 1365.3 Kg/hr, taking into account the expansion of air (8112 cu m/hr)

Sorry - I entered the wrong info!
189.6 Kg/hr, taking into account the expansion of air (1126.7 cu m/hr)
