Wet bulb depression Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Wet_bulb_depression = Dry Bulb Temperature in °C-Wet bulb temperature
WBD = tdb-Tw
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Dry Bulb Temperature in °C- Dry bulb temperature in °C is the temperature of air measured by a thermometer freely exposed to the air but shielded from radiation and moisture.
Wet bulb temperature- Wet bulb temperature is the temperature of the wet bulb and denoted by the symbol Tw.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dry Bulb Temperature in °C: 90 --> No Conversion Required
Wet bulb temperature: 20 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
WBD = tdb-Tw --> 90-20
Evaluating ... ...
WBD = 70
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
70 --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
70 <-- Wet Bulb Depression

What is dry bulb temperature?

The Dry Bulb Temperature refers basically to the ambient air temperature. It is called "Dry Bulb" because the air temperature is indicated by a thermometer not affected by the moisture of the air.

What is wet bulb tempearture?

The Wet Bulb temperature is the adiabatic saturation temperature. Wet Bulb temperature can be measured by using a thermometer with the bulb wrapped in wet muslin. The adiabatic evaporation of water from the thermometer bulb and the cooling effect are indicated by a "wet-bulb temperature" lower than the "dry bulb temperature" in the air.

How to Calculate Wet bulb depression?

Wet bulb depression calculator uses Wet_bulb_depression = Dry Bulb Temperature in °C-Wet bulb temperature to calculate the Wet Bulb Depression, Wet bulb depression formula is defined as the difference between the dry-bulb temperature and wet-bulb temperature. Wet Bulb Depression is denoted by WBD symbol.

How to calculate Wet bulb depression using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Wet bulb depression, enter Dry Bulb Temperature in °C (tdb) & Wet bulb temperature (Tw) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Wet bulb depression calculation can be explained with given input values -> 70 = 90-20.
