AbstractThe gravimetric method of determining humidity ratio from which relative humidity may be found is, in concept, one of the simplest and most direct. Careful consideration was given as to its suitability for standards purposes and it was tried out, in comparison with the atmosphere producer. The many sources of difficulty and error encountered with the gravimetric method which led to its rejection as a suitable "standard", in favour of the atmosphere producer, are now described.
