A moderate degree of wetness.
That which moistens or makes damp or wet; exuding fluid; liquid in small quantity.
Oil and water often found in shipments of borings and/or turnings because of their physical nature.
Amount of water present in seeds.
Free moisture (or surface moisture) — The portion of total moisture that comes from external sources such as rain or snow. Inherent moisture (or bed moisture) — Moisture that exists as an integral part of the coal seam prior to mining. Total moisture — Moisture that is determined as the loss in weight of a coal sample in an air atmosphere under rigidly controlled conditions of time, temperature and air flow.
Water or other liquid causing a slight wetness or dampness.
The percentage of moisture in pulp, paper, etc. that varies according to atmospheric conditions. Moisture content of paper is normally measured by drying the paper to constant weight at 100 degrees C. Paper will normally have about 5% moisture when dry, but that value can range from 3% to 7%, depending on the type of paper and the materials used in its manufacture.
Water in the liquid or vapor phase.
liquid diffused or condensed in a relatively small quantity: amount of wetness Minnesota: Pioneer Agriculture
wetness caused by water; "drops of wet gleamed on the window"
water in the form of rain or snow.
The amount of water droplets contained in the atmosphere.
Water that is dispersed through a gas or liquid in the form of water vapor or small droplets, dispersed through a solid or condensed on the surface of a solid.
Water diffused in the atmosphere or the ground.
Lots of moisture is really important in many situations – use your imagination. Not so with paper. If paper's too damp, it's going to curl. And curling inside a printer or copier can cause jams, misfeeds and tantrums. Unlucky.
The sheet must have the correct moisture content throughout, to prevent the paper from curling inside the machine, which can also result in jams and misfeeds.
Essentially water, quantitatively (and sometimes qualitatively) determined by definite prescribed methods which may vary according to the nature of the material. For example, ASTM D 4263 (Standard test method for indication of moisture in concrete by the plastic sheet method) is a test method used to indicate the presence of capillary moisture in concrete.
Very finely divided particles of water present to a moderate degree in the air or in a material.
wetness caused by water in the air
Water in some form in the atmosphere.
Refers to the water vapor content in the atmosphere, or the total water, liquid, solid or vapor, in a given volume of air.
(Or moisture content.) In meteorology, a general term usually referring to the water vapor content of the atmosphere, or to the total water substance (gaseous, liquid, and solid) present in a given volume of air. In climatology, moisture refers more specifically to quantities of precipitation or to precipitation effectiveness. See humidity; see also soil moisture.
