The highest humidity ever recorded was a 95 degrees Fahrenheit dew point in Saudi Arabia in 2003. The dew point is correlated with relative humidity; theoretically, humidity could reach saturation at 100 percent and ther... More »

A relative humidity level between 45 to 55 percent is considered comfortable for most people. Humidity levels are variable from place to place, as well as from season to season. It is important to ensure that you are awa... More »

Choosing a dehumidifier requires the consumer to consider the size of the room and the humidity level. Manufacturers rate dehumidifiers by the number of pints of water they remove from a room in a 24-hour period. More »

To calculate dew point, you need to know the current temperature and relative humidity, and then solve the equation Td = T - ((100 - RH) / 5) for Td, which stands for the dew point temperature in degrees Celsius. This eq... More »

The word "dew" refers to small drops of water formed from moisture condensation in the atmosphere. The temperature at which the water vapor becomes a liquid at the same rate as it evaporates at a given atmospheric pressu... More » Science Earth Science Atmosphere

Relative humidity is defined as the amount of atmospheric moisture present, divided by the amount of moisture that would be present if the air were completely saturated. This ratio is typically expressed as a percentage.... More » Science Earth Science Atmosphere

Cumulus clouds are comprised of water droplets, water vapor, super-cooled water droplets and ice crystals (when the freezing point is in the middle of the cloud), according to Northern Michigan University. Cumulus clouds... More »
