Or that the wet pavement after a rain will gradually become dry. Evaporation is the process by which a liquid exposed to the air gradually becomes a vapor or gas. Not all liquids evaporate at the same rate. Alcohol, ammonia, and gasoline, for example, evaporate more quickly than water. There are two forces that act on the molecules that make up every substance. One is cohesion, which draws them together. The other is the heat motion of the molecules, which makes them fly apart. When the two forces are fairly evenly balanced, we have a liquid. At the surface of a liquid, there are molecules of the liquid moving about. Those molecules which are moving outward more quickly than the neighboring molecules, may fly off into space and thus escape the force of cohesion. Evaporation is this escape of molecules. When a liquid is warmed, evaporation takes place quicker. This is because in a warmer liquid more molecules will have the speed to escape. In a closed container, evaporation stops quickly. This is because when the number of molecules in the vapor reaches a certain point , the number of molecules that fall back into the liquid equal the number that are escaping from the liquid. When this happens, we say that the vapor has reached its saturation point. When air is in motion above a liquid, it speeds up evaporation. Also, the greater the surface of the liquid exposed to the air, the faster the evaporation. Water in a shallow pan evaporates faster than in a tall pitcher. Fun time The Kiddle Box 1.
