What happens to the rate of evaporation of a liquid after…
a. a decrease in temperature
b. an increase in the surface area of a liquid exposed to air
c. an increase in the intermolecular forces

  • General Chemistry -

    a. If the temperature decreases the kinetic energy of the molecules of the liquid decrease; therefore, the rate of evaporation is slower.
    b. If the surface area is increased that gives more area from which the liquid may evaporate and the rate will increase.
    c. Intermolecular forces means there is more attraction for the molecules within the liquid and the rate of evaporation will decrease.
