## MCQ on Humidity Measurement

1. water
2. water vapor
3. oxygen
4. liquid

1. True
2. False

#### Option 2: False

Explanation:As the temperature of the air increases more water vapor can be held. Because the movement of molecules at higher temperatures prevents condensation from occurring.
##### Que.3 Which of the following is measurement of humidity?
1. Relative
2. Absolute
3. Specific
4. All of the above.

#### Option 4: All of the above.

##### Que.4 ____ is a measure of the actual amount of water vapor in the air, regardless of the air’s temperature.
1. Relative humidity
2. Absolute humidity
3. Specific humidity
4. None of the above

1. %
2. grams/m3
3. % by volume
4. PPMV

#### Option 2: grams/m3

##### Que.6 _____ is a measure of the amount of water vapor that air is holding compared the amount it can hold at a specific temperature.
1. Relative humidity
2. Absolute humidity
3. Specific humidity
4. None of the above

#### Option 1: Relative humidity

Explanation:A relative humidity of 30% means the air holds on that day (specific temperature) holds 30% of water needed for the air to be saturated.
##### Que.7 Identify the correct statement from the following.
1. Saturated air has an absolute humidity of 100%.
2. The higher the amount of water vapor, the higher the absolute humidity.
3. Absolute humidity is expressed in percentage.
4. Warm air possesses less water vapor (moisture) than cold air.

#### Option 2: The higher the amount of water vapor, the higher the absolute humidity.

Explanation:
Saturated air has an relative humidity of 100%.
Relative humidity is expressed in percentage.
Warm air possesses more water vapor (moisture) than cold air.
##### Que.8 A device to measure humidity is called a
1. hygrometer
2. hydrometer
3. flow meter
4. None of the above

#### Option 1: hygrometer

##### Que.9 A sling psychrometer consists of two thermometers. One thermometer is ordinary. The other has a cloth wick over its bulb and is called a
1. dry-bulb thermometer
2. covered thermometer
3. wet-bulb thermometer
4. black-bulb thermometer

1. maximum
2. the same
3. minimum
4. zero

1. 50%
2. 75%
3. 90%
4. 100%

#### Option 4: 100%

##### Que.12 Which sensors measure the moisture level using humidity?
1. Capacitive Sensor
2. Resistive Sensor
3. Thermal Conductivity
4. Both resistive and conductive

#### Option 1: Capacitive Sensor

##### ii. The wet bulb thermometer measures the relative humidity.
1. Only statement (i) is correct.
2. Only statement (ii) is correct.
3. Both statements are correct.
4. Both statements are wrong.

#### Option 1: Only statement (i) is correct.

Explanation:
The wet bulb thermometer can not measures the relative humidity.
A psychrometer also called a sling psychrometer has two thermometers attached.
One is dry (often called the dry bulb thermometer) and measures the actual air temperature.
The other called the wet bulb thermometer has a has a wet cloth at the tip.
As water molecules evaporate from the surface of the wet bulb they will take heat with them. Hence lowering the reading on the wet-bulb thermometer. The rate of evaporation depends on the amount of water vapor in the air.
Comparing the two temperatures in a chart will give the relative humidity.
