Cooling and dehumidification
Moisture is removed as saturated liquid.

Defines the process slope.
For adiabatic humidification, then
0=0 ij — ij = AW 7W
W2 — Wi = AW Since 7W of the water is rather small, i2 ~ /,
In Phoenix, it is possible to use evaporative cooling in summer. In a room of 50 m3, the air temperature is 45°C and relative humidity is 20%. Comfort standard allows the relative humidity to be increased to 60% by evaporative cooling. Determine the dry bulb temperature and water needed if there is no internal heat source and no air infiltration. Assume local pressure is 101325 Pa.
This is an adiabatic humidification process. The air process in a psychrometric chart is isoenthalpy. For the psychrometric chart, we can determine the starting humidity ratio and ending humidity ratio as O
