saturated air

saturated air

[′sach·ə‚rād·əd ′er]
(meteorology)
Moist air in a state of equilibrium with a plane surface of pure water or ice at the same temperature and pressure; that is, air whose vapor pressure is the saturation vapor pressure and whose relative humidity is 100.

saturated air

Air containing the maximum amount of water vapor possible at a given temperature; the partial pressure of the water vapor is equal to the vapor pressure of water at the same temperature.

where, f' is the slope of the curve of saturated air enthalpy versus the temperature of air, i.
This saturated air and liquid water leads to corrosion, pipe scale and micro biological growth.
The device shown in Figure 3(b) allows to achieve any desired humidity level in the chamber by mixing different volume ratios of dry and fully saturated air, which continuously flow into the chamber.

That is the saturated air temperature, or dewpoint.

For each degree Celsius of warming, 7% more water is available to rain down from saturated air masses.
Saturated air appears like a heavy white mist known as steam fog.
I've felt the saturated air of the Neutral Buoyancy Lab on my skin, where astronauts do all of their "water" training.
However, as humidity increases the already saturated air absorbs less sweat, and body heat begins to build up.
For the air side, the total (sensible and latent) energy transfer rate for wetted surfaces is proportional to the enthalpy difference between the airstream and saturated air at the temperature of the coil surface, while the sensible (convective) heat transfer is proportional to the temperature difference between the airstream and coil surface.
Then, as the saturated air cools further, the water vapor condenses, forming tiny water droplets we see as fog.
