DRY BULB TEMP.(d.b.t):
It is the temp. which the thermometer can measure in air.
For HUMAN comfort/relaxing Temperarure will be 21 deg.
WET BULB TEMP.(w.b.t):
If a moist wick is placed over a thermometer bulb, the evaporation of moisture from the wick will lower the thermometer reading .This temp. is known as the w.b.t.
wet bulb temperature measurement done by cyclometer with two thermometer installed,one for Dry bulb 7 second for Wet bulb temperature
DEW POINT (d. p):
is the temperature below which water vapor in the air start to condense known DEW point.
Is the presence of moisture or water vapor in the air. the amount of humidity in the air affects the rate of evaporation of perspiration from the body. Dry air causes rapid evaporation.
