Note! In a psychrometric chart or in a Mollier diagram the amount of vapor humidity ratio - x - is indicated in kg/kgdry air (kg vapor per kg dry air).  The values above can be transformed to kg/kgdry air by dividing the values with the air density at the actual temperature.

Example - Humidifying Air with Steam

Air at 20oC and 30% relative humidity are humidified to 20oC and 80% relative humidity.

From the table above it can be estimated that air at 20oC and 30% relative humidity contains 0.52 kg water vapor per 100 m3 air volume. Air at 20oC and 80% relative humidity contains 1.39 kg per 100 m3 air volume.

The amount of water vapor required per 100 m3 air volume can be calculated like

Amount of Water Vapor = (1.39 kg/100 m3 air volume) - (0.52 kg/100 m3 air volume)

= 0.87 (kg/100 m3 air volume)
