A hygrometer is an instrument used for measuring the moisture content in the atmosphere. Humidity measurement instruments usually rely on measurements of some other quantity such as temperature, pressure, mass or a mechanical or electrical change in a substance as moisture is absorbed. By calibration and calculation, these measured quantities can lead to a measurement of humidity. Modern electronic devices use temperature of condensation (the dew point), or changes in electrical capacitance or resistance to measure humidity differences.
A hygrometer is a device used to measure humidity or the amount of moisture in the air. In the industrial and industry context, hygrometers are used to measure and control the humidity levels in various industrial and manufacturing processes, such as drying, storing, and processing of materials, products, and equipment.
