# (Solved): Air - Saturation Vapor Pressure 1) (10 Pt) Based On The Saturation Vapor Pressure Curve To The Right...

Air - Saturation Vapor Pressure 1) (10 pt) Based on the saturation vapor pressure curve to the right, answer the following: (assume you can read the graph to the nearest 1 deg or 1 mb) a) You measure a parcel of air to have a temperature of 35Â° C and vapor pressure of 20 mb. What is the dew point? Draw on the graph the transition the parcel would take to reach the dew point (how did you find it?) sulle Saturation Vapor Pressure ( malibar) 1 b) The above air parcel is over a lake and evaporation is increasing the vapor pressure. what is the saturation vapor pressure for this parcel, If held at constant temperature? Draw the transition on the graph to show on the graph show how you found this value. 20 tro 30 20 10 0 n i Tbnco 10 20 Temperature (degC) 10 X5 Souissemet bevisado ofte n 1000 now c) Assuming a dry adiabatic lapse adiabatic rate of 10Â°C/1000 m, if the air parcel is currently at 1600m above the surface, at what height (in meters) will clouds form? Sosos, un no noon an n o solo y no ba (6 d) You wake up early in the summer and notice there is dew on the grass. If the vapor pressure of the air is 30 mb, what temperature did the air cool below to create the dew?

### Expert Answer

1a) Saturated vapor pressure for 35oC temperature is 55 mb Vapor pressure = 20 mb Relative humidity, RH = (Vapor pressure/Saturated vapor pressure)*100% = (20/55)*100% = 36.36% Tdp
