The combination of these strong winds and dry conditions will bring fire danger to portions of southern California. Red Flag Warnings are in effect here. Any new fires in this region could quickly grow out of control. Read More >

Mixing Ratio

by Tim Brice and Todd Hall
 
 
Enter a temperature and a pressure or a dewpoint and a pressure or both a temperature and a dewpoint and a pressure:
Mixing Ratio
If you want the saturated mixing ratio enter the air temperature:  saturated mixing ratio:
Fahrenheit Celsius Kelvin grams per kilogram
If you want the actual mixing ratio enter the dewpoint:  actual mixing ratio:
Fahrenheit Celsius Kelvin grams per kilogram
Enter your actual station pressure (not the altimeter setting):  relative humidity - requires both temp and dewpoint
in of mercury mm of mercury millibars (hPA) %
If you enter both a temperature and dewpoint you'll get a bonus answer.  

 

What is the formula for the mixing ratio script?
