"Relative humidity is the ratio of the actual vapor pressure to the saturated vapor pressure, which we discussed in detail in Episode 3 of this series. So relative humidity is like a measure of how saturated the air is"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
