Drying of wet clothes in an open terrace takes place due to the phenomenon of ___.
Evaporation is a surface phenomenon. The particles of liquid (of wet clothes) are always in motion and at any given temperature, there are particles with different amounts of kinetic energy. Some of the particles that are present at the surface have high kinetic energy. These particles can break their bonds and get converted into vapour. Hence, evaporation is the reason how wet clothes get dried up.
