Problem 12DQ

Why is a hot, humid day in the tropics generally more uncomfortable for human beings than a hot, dry day in the desert?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 12DQ On a hot day, our body sweats and the sweat evaporates to make us feel cool. When the air is dry, it can take more sweat from our body. But when the air is humid, it has water vapor in it. Therefore, the sweat excreted by our body is not well-absorbed by the air. So, we do not feel cool as there is little evaporation of our sweat into the atmosphere.
