Virtual Temperature


From the user, an air temperature , a dewpoint temperature , and a station pressure are given.

To calculate the virtual temperature, the temperatures must be converted to units of degrees Celsius and the station pressure must be converted to units of millibars To see how to convert these values, see the links below:

Pressure Conversion

Temperature Conversion

Then, the virtual temperature can be calculated using the formula below:


The virtual temperature answer will be in units of Kelvin , but virtual temperature can be converted to other units using the link above.
