What does sling psychrometer mean?
Also, what is the purpose of a sling psychrometer?
sling psychrometer. An instrument used to measure the amount of water vapor or relative humidity in the air. It is a combination of wet- and dry-bulb thermometers mounted on a frame with a handle that allows it to be swung around to permit air to move across the psychrometer.
Similarly, what is another name for a sling psychrometer? hygrometer. (redirected from Sling psychrometer)
Simply so, how does a sling psychrometer work?
Working Mechanism. The sling psychrometer works by allowing the water soaked up by the cloth wick/sock covering the wet-bulb thermometer to get evaporated into the air. This is measured by the wet-bulb thermometer. At the same time, the dry-bulb thermometer provides the original reference temperature reading.
What unit does a sling psychrometer use?
Relative humidity can be measured by an instrument called a hygrometer. The simplest hygrometer - a sling psychrometer - consists of two thermometers mounted together with a handle attached on a chain. One thermometer is ordinary. The other has a cloth wick over its bulb and is called a wet-bulb thermometer.
