Dew point

This calculator determines dew point from given temperature and relative humidity of air

The Dew point is the temperature to which air must be cooled, at constant barometric pressure, for water vapor to condense into water. Dew point temperature is a saturation temperature. That is, the relative humidity of gas (air) is 100%. Further addition of water vapor or cooling of air leads to appearing of condensed water. For plus temperatures, it is a dew, for minus - ice or snow.

For example, if you bring something to the warm place right after the frost, the air close to the surface is cooled below the dew point, and condensed water appears. Then, after this thing is warmed, condensed water becomes the vapor again. That's the advice not to turn on electronic devices immediately after transportation during cold weather.

Calculation of dew point is taken from here


where a = 17.27, b = 237.7, ln - natural logarithm, RH - relative humidity of air (from 0 to 1), Tp - dew point
According to wikipedia, in the range from 0 to 60C this formula has error about 0.4C
