psychrometric chart

psychrometric chart

[¦sī·krə¦me·trik ′chärt]
(thermodynamics)
A graph each point of which represents a specific condition of a gas-vapor system (such as air and water vapor) with regard to temperature (horizontal scale) and absolute humidity (vertical scale); other characteristics of the system, such as relative humidity, wet-bulb temperature, and latent heat of vaporization, are indicated by lines on the chart.

psychrometric chart

A chart showing the relationship between dewpoint temperature, drybulb temperature, wet bulb temperature, humidity ratio, and relative humidity.
