Solution

The correct option is D

1.164 g/L


% Relative Humidity = Partial Pressure of H2OVapour Pressure of H2O×100

75=PH2O30×100

PH2O=22.5 torr

% of H2O in air = 22.5760×1002.96

Molar mass of wet air = 29×97.04+2.96×181002814.16+53.2810028.67

Density of wet air = PMRT=1×28.670.0821×3001.164 gL
