Evaporation is the process by which water changes from a liquid to a gaseous state. While the boiling temperature of water is 100oC, it evaporates very slowly at 0oC. When the temperature rises, the rate of evaporation increases with it. However, the rate at which water evaporates varies depending on the temperature and the amount of water that needs to be evaporated. Hence, the phenomenon of change of a liquid into vapours (gases) at any temperature below its boiling point is called evaporation.

The preparation of common salt, drying wet clothes, hair in the sun, and ironing of cloth are examples of evaporation. Evaporation is a basic purification method used in our day-to-day life. Condensation is the process by which the vapour or gaseous state of water is converted to a liquid state; it is the opposite of evaporation.

The blue/black ink is a mixture of blue and black dye in water. The dye can be separated from the ink by chemical and physical methods such as chromatography and evaporation. Evaporation is the process in which a volatile substance is separated from a non-volatile substance.

Process of Evaporation

When a liquid is heated, it evaporates. This implies that the molecules in the liquid should acquire kinetic energy. When the kinetic energy is gained, the molecules of a liquid vibrate more rapidly. As a result, the liquid changes its state of matter from liquid to gas.

At all temperatures, including room temperature, all liquids undergo evaporation. Nevertheless, the evaporation of liquids with higher boiling points occurs at a significantly slower pace and may not be readily observable. Conversely, liquids with lower boiling points experience rapid evaporation.

Evaporation is a slow process that can be increased or slowed down by external factors. The various factors that affect the rate of evaporation are temperature, surface area, wind speed and humidity.
