## Relative Humidity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a relative humidity.

RH = VD_{a} / VD_{s} * 100

- Where RH is the relative humidity (%)
- VDa is the actual vapor density (g/m^3)
- VDs is the saturation vapor density (g/m^3)

## Relative Humidity Definition

A relative humidity is defined as the ratio of the vapor density to saturation density of water in the air.

## Relative Humidity Example

How to calculate a relative humidity?

**First, determine the vapor density.**Measure the water vapor density.

**Next, determine the saturation density.**Measure the saturation water vapor density.

**Finally, calculate the relative humidity.**Calculate the relative humidity using the formula above.

## FAQ

**What is a relative humidity?**

A relative humidity is a ratio of the vapor density to saturation vapor density. It’s a measure of how much water vapor air can hold compared to how much water vapor it takes to saturate the air at any given temperature.

**What is a saturated air?**

A saturated air is one at a 100% relative humidity and that at the specific temperature it cannot hold any more water vapor.
