Air can contain a certain amount of water vapor molecules.

I want to know that which any other non-hazardous gas can adsorb very more amount of water vapor molecules?


The air is not a sponge.

The maximum amount of gaseous water in a volume is just the saturation pressure (the vapor pressure) of water.
