Temperature, Relative Humidity, T-Test.


Temperature and relative humidity are the most important factors affecting on human comfort. This Research test the monthly average temperature and relative humidity for some selected stations in Iraq, three stations (Baghdad - Mosul - Basra) to find the pattern covariance of the annual average of temperatures and relative humidity for the period of time (2000-2014) By using the Welch T-test or paired T- test, We find that the calculated value is greater than the tabular value in both stations (Baghdad - Mosul) and (Baghdad - Basra) for both temperatures and relative humidity, and this indicates an increasing trend in the average of temperature and relative humidity in two stations (Baghdad - Mosul) and (Baghdad - Basra), and since the main hypothesis is that there is a relationship between the two racists and the calculations prove that, so we reject the null hypothesis, which proves the validity of the main hypothesis, i.e. there is a relationship between temperature and humidity in these selected stations.
