Nice nerdy article by a rocket scientist.
Sounds very plausible what he is saying, but as someone who makes a living doing applied research I can only say: back up these experimental data with proof from the field.

That's kind of a given though. With a humid atmosphere, you've got denser air, resulting in more air passing over the surface off the ball, giving higher pressure differences and therefore more swing.Originally Posted by Samuel_Vimes

Humid air is actually less denser than dry air. IIRR, there has been no direct correlation found between humidity and amount of swing in the experimental studies thus far!Originally Posted by Sir Redman
