Obviously, the higher the temperature of the liquid, the faster the evaporation is. This is because a higher temperature means that the liquid particles have more energy to be able to escape.

Also, the more the liquid that gets exposed, the faster the evaporation. That is, if the greater the surface area of the liquid surface, the faster the evaporation.
If all three vessels shown here are kept at the same temperature, which vessel experiences the fastest rate of evaporation?
  • Vessel A
  • Vessel B
  • Vessel C
  • All vessels experience the same rates of evaporation
