 Relative humidity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Relative humidity is the ratio of the current vapor pressure of water in any gas (especially air) to the equilibrium vapor pressure, at which the gas is called saturated at the current temperature, expressed as a percentage.
Relative humidity is often mentioned in weather forecasts and reports, as it is an indicator of the likelihood of precipitation, dew, or fog.
This phenomemon is a mechanism behind thunderstorms, since as the humid rising air also becomes colder as it rises due to adiabatic cooling, and as the air cools past its dew point, water vapor condenses into small droplets (which may form clouds).

 Relative deprivation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Political scientists and economists note that relative deprivation is a form of inequality which distorts all policies, since participants need the means to engage in the discourse.
Egoistic relative deprivation can be seen in the example of a worker which believes he should have been promoted faster and may lead to that person taking actions designed to improve his position within the group; those actions are however unlikely to affect many people.
Relative deprivation is the experience of being deprived of something to which one thinks he is entitled to [Walker and Smith 2001].

 Relative density - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Relative density (also known as specific gravity) is a measure of the density of a material.
Relative density is often used by geologists and mineralogists to help determine the mineral content of a rock or other sample.
The relative density therefore has nearly the same value as density of the material expressed in grams per cubic centimetre, but without any units of measurement.

 Relative clause - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Georgian, relative clauses are generally marked both with a particle outside the clause, which is declined to indicate the relative clause's role within the larger sentence, and with a relative pronoun, which is declined to indicate its own role within the relative clause.
Inside the relative clause, romelshits is the relative pronoun: it is formed by taking the interrogative pronoun romel- ("which?"), adding the postposition -shi ("in") - producing the interrogative pronoun romelshi ("in which?") - and finally adding the suffix -ts to obtain the relative pronoun romelshits ("in which").
As in Hebrew, the regular pronoun referring to the antecedent is repeated in the relative clause - literally, "the boy whom I saw him in class..." (the -hu in ra'aituhu and the -ō in shuftō).

 DENSITY - LoveToKnow Article on DENSITY
In expressing the absolute or relative density of any substance, it is necessary to specify the conditions for which the relation holds: in the case of gases, the temperature and pressure of the experimental gas (and of the standard, in the case of relative Jensity); and in the case of solids and liquids, the temperature.
The density gives very important information as to the molecular weight, since by the law of Avogadro it is seen that the relative density is the ratio of the molecular weights of the experimental and standard gases.
Related to the determination of the density of a gas is the determination of the density of a vapour, i.e.

 Pitch (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pitches are named with integers because of octave and enharmonic equivalency (for example, C# and Db are the same pitch while C4 and C5 are functionally the same, one octave apart).
Pitches may be described in various ways, including high or low, as discrete or indiscrete, pitch that changes with time ( chirping) and the manner in which this change with time occurs: gliding ; portamento ; or vibrato, and as determinate or indeterminate.
Pitch is something perceived by the human ear, as opposed to frequency, the physical measurement of vibration.

 Relative pressure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Therefore, the relative pressure of ambient air at sea level is usually close to zero.
A total vacuum, with absolute pressure of zero, would have relative pressure of -1 atm.
Relative pressure is pressure as compared to atmospheric pressure, or the average pressure of air and Earth's sea level — 101.325 KPa, or 1 atm.

 Key signature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Key signatures are generally written immediately after the clef at the beginning of a line of musical notation, although they can appear in other parts of a score, usually after a double bar.
Baroque music written in minor keys often was written with a key signature with fewer flats than we now associate with their keys; for example, movements in C minor often had only two flats.
Note that an absence of a key signature does not always mean that the music is in the key of C major or A minor: each accidental may be notated explicitly, or the piece may be atonal.

 Restrictive clause - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Language learners most commonly encounter it in the context of relative clauses, where it is particularly problematic for learners of English, but linguists use the concept in a broader range of contexts.
The relative clause serves to disambiguate; it defines the antecedent, restricts its reference, and is thus integrated into the basic idea of the main clause and is necessary if the main clause is to have its intended meaning.
In English, a restrictive clause is not preceded by a comma, whereas a non-restrictive clause is separated from its referent by a comma.

 Encyclopedia: Frequency
The frequency f is equal to the speed v of the wave divided by the wavelength λ (lambda) of the wave: The wavelength is the distance between repeating units of a wave pattern.
Measuring the frequency of sound, electromagnetic waves (such as radio or light), electrical signals, or other waves, the frequency in hertz is the number of cycles of the repetitive waveform per second.
Frequency is the measurement of the number of times that a repeated event occurs per unit time.

 Pronoun - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch
In linguistics and grammar, a pronoun is a word that usually takes the place of a noun or noun phrase that was previously mentioned (such as "she", "it") or that refers to something or someone ("I", "me", "you").
Latin made do without third person pronouns, replacing them by deictics (which are in fact the source of personal pronouns in all Romance languages).
Fijian, for example, has a dual (two people), a small group plural (3 to 5 people), and a large group plural (more than 5 people).

 Relative pronoun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Within the relative clause, the relative pronoun stands for the noun phrase it references in the main clause, which is one of the arguments of the verb in the relative clause.
A relative pronoun is a pronoun that marks a relative clause within a larger sentence.
Relative pronouns may or may not agree with the antecedent.

 No. 01-0327
The majority holds that the word "relative" is ambiguous, concluding that it is "an indefinite, elastic, intrinsically imprecise word in the context of the exclusion...." Majority op., ¶7.
We held in Haese that the term "relative" was ambiguous in the context of the anti-lapse statute as it pertains to a non-blood relative.
The majority also suggests that the cases from other jurisdictions are of little or no use in the present case because, among the cases that hold "relative" to be unambiguous, one held that "relative" clearly did not include domestic partners, and the others dealt with affinity relationships.

 Relative pitch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Unlike absolute pitch (sometimes called "perfect pitch"), relative pitch is quite common among musicians, especially musicians who are used to "playing by ear".
Some music teachers teach their students relative pitch by having them associate each possible interval with the first two notes of a popular song; examples of this may be found at ear training.
North Indian musicians learn relative pitch by singing intervals over a drone, which is also described by W.

 Absolute pitch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They may have a harder time developing relative pitch than others, and for many musical tasks like transposition, lack of training in relative skills can trip up a musician with absolute pitch, who will attempt to use their absolute knowledge for what is clearly a relative task.
There is no necessary correlation between absolute pitch and musical genius: many with absolute pitch do not work in music, and it can be a liability when attempting to play an instrument without having had prior musical training (especially for those for whom out-of-tune music is uncomfortable).
They may also have trouble when learning to play certain instruments, such as the trombone and the violin family of stringed instruments, where playing initially out of tune will be uncomfortable.

 USEFULNESS AND USELESSNESS OF RELATIVE HUMIDITY
The relative humidity says nothing about the actual amount of moisture in the air (dewpoint and mixing ratio give the forecaster a much better idea how much moisture is in the air).
Relative humidity plotted on an upper level chart can give a forecaster an idea of whether the air is rising or sinking.
On a typical day, relative humidity is high in the morning (since temperatures are cooler) and lower in the late afternoon (since temperatures are warmer).

Relative humidity is the ratio of the actual amount of moisture in the air to the amount of moisture that the air could hold if saturated at that temperature.
Because of this temperature influence, relative humidity is lowest during the warmest portion of the day and highest during the coolest hours of night and very early morning.
relative humidity for the year at Fargo and Devils Lake is 62 and 63 percent, respectively, while at Bismarck and Williston the average relative humidity is only 53 and 54 percent, respectively.

 Howstuffworks "What is relative humidity and how does it affect how I feel outside?"
A reading of 100 percent relative humidity means that the air is totally saturated with water vapor and cannot hold any more, creating the possibility of rain.
Relative humidity is the ratio of the current absolute humidity to the highest possible absolute humidity (which depends on the current air temperature).
This doesn't mean that the relative humidity must be 100 percent in order for it to rain -- it must be 100 percent where the clouds are forming, but the relative humidity near the ground could be much less.
