Which condition out of the following will increase the evaporation of water?
Increase in temperature of water
Decrease in temperature of water
Less exposed surface area of water
Adding common salt to water
The correct option is C Increase in temperature of water
As the temperature of the water increases, the kinetic energy increases. As a result, the force of attraction between the molecules decreases, and the molecules become more and more separated.
Thus, increasing the temperature of a body of water also often increases evaporation. This is because as the temperature rises, the water molecules begin moving about more rapidly and will finally escape.
