If you live in a mid-latitude region, you may notice changes in relative humidity from season to season. Summers tend to be humid, while winters are drier. Besides changes in relative humidity between seasons, changes can be observed throughout one day, and that is the purpose of this experiment—investigate the relationship between relative humidity and temperature over a 23-hour period.
In this experiment, you will
Use a Temperature Probe and Relative Humidity Sensor to collect and analyze outdoor air temperature and relative humidity for 23 hours.
Determine if there is relationship between relative humidity and air temperature.
