Determine the humidity of air by different thermometers, Physics

The humidity of air can be determined by use of two different thermometers; a 'dry bulb' thermometer and a 'wet bulb' thermometer.  With reference to a suitable text book, explain how these thermometers can be used to estimate the amount of water vapour in the air.

Describe one other method of measuring the humidity of the atmosphere.
