Is there a humidity calculator out there?

Alan B | Posted in General Questions on

I live in a leaky house, the inside humidity tracks the outdoor humidity with a lag and temperature adjusted, but i want to be able to input an outdoor temp and humidity and calculate what the indoor humidity will eventually become at 20ºC (theoretically of course).

Basically i want to know what the resulting humidity would be at an input temp and humidity if that air was raised to 20C

I know the outdoor will eventually change before the indoor catches up but it would be useful to me.

    http://www.dpcalc.org/ ... one of many

    Adjust your temp and humidity, keeping the dewpoint constant, and you have your answer.

    That one does the job....but for just RH and dew pts a simplier one to use
    is

    Temperature, Dewpoint, and Relative Humidity Calculator = http : // einstein.atmos.colostate . edu/~mcnoldy/Humidity.html

    Enter temp and then enter either dew pt or RH to find the other.
