Question

# What is the dewpoint when the dry-bulb temperature is 14°C and the wet-bulb temperature is 8°C? (1) 1°C (2) -9°C (3) 6°C (4) 22°C

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

Use the dewpoint temperature table using the dry-bulb temperature of $14\text{\textdegree}$C and the difference between the wet-bulb temperature and dry-bulb temperature is $6\text{\textdegree}$C. From the table, you will see that the dewpoint is $1\text{\textdegree}$C.

So, the correct answer is choice $\textbf{\color{#c34632}(1).}$
