Water vapor in humid air contributes to slider air-bearing pressure in a totally different way from that of dry air. Water vapor pressure keeps constant in slider-disk interface and is identical to the water vapor pressure outside the interface. The simulated slider flying height and attitude in humid air are different from that in dry air and the higher the relative humidity the bigger the differences.
