Relative humidity is the percentage of water vapor contained in the air contains under certain conditions, that is, in relation to the quantity of water vapor contained in saturated air under same conditions.
If relative humidity is 80% and the temperature of 20 ° C, since saturated air contains 17.7 g / m3, the air taken from environment is considered to contain 80% of the water, or better 0.8×17.7 = 14.6 grams of water per m3.
