Problem 10DQ

In some household air conditioners used in dry climates, air is cooled by blowing it through a water-soaked filter, evaporating some of the water. How does this cool the air? Would such a system work well in a high-humidity climate? Why or why not?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 10DQ In some household air conditioners used in dry climates, air is cooled by blowing it through a water-soaked filter, evaporating some of the water.that is cool the air by below process: Evaporative cooling-heat is transferred from the hot air to water,which evaporates by removing latent heat of vaporisation. In a high-humidity climate,evaporation is less efficient because air is saturated with water vapour,so an evaporative cooling system would not work as well as in a dry climate. Or Graphical representation of air conditioner process: The hot air which passes through the filter losses thermal energy when it contacts the water molecules; these ones gain energy from the the hot air molecules. In consequence, the water molecules which have reached the enough temperature 100 C get evaporated. Finally, the air which have passed the filter is then cooled.
