A hygrometer is an instrument used to measure atmospheric humidity. A simple form of hygrometer, used in houses and offices, utilises the change in length in an organic fibre (often a human hair) brought about by the absorption of moisture. The fibre tends to lengthen in damp air, and the apparatus is so arranged that the change in length of the fi...
