What is the Difference Between Humidity And Relative Humidity?

Q. What is Humidity?

Answer: The term ‘Humidity’ and the term ‘Relative Humidity’ are two different things. The amount of water vapor in the air in relation to the total amount of air is called humidity. It is also known as absolute humidity.

Q. What is Relative Humidity?

Answer: Humidity is the amount of moisture in the air relative to the temperature i.e. relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared to the amount the air can hold in that temperature. When the air cannot hold all the moisture, it condenses as dew.

This is a measure of how much water vapor is present in the air (at a certain temp) relative to how much water vapor air is capable of holding at that temperature, expressed as a percentage value.

Depending on the temperature of the air, relative humidity varies.
