I am trying to determine the cracking pressure for a check valve assembly that we are building and am looking for some guidance on the formula. We have an enclosed volume of moist air and we want to vent that to the atmosphere as the temperature within the enclosure increases. We can control the increase in temperature, so what I am looking for is the proper way to calculate the increase in pressure as the temperature changes, based on the humidity level within the enclosed space. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
