# How does a glass of water evaporate?

A glass of water evaporates because the liquid water in the glass is turning into water vapor. It turns into water vapor because the tiny pieces that make up water are moving faster and faster, and then they turn into water vapor.

Water evaporate faster in a wide glass than in a narrower glass.

Wide glass because the water has more surface area to heat up and evaporate.

A wide glass exposes a greater surface area, and will evaporate quicker.

It depends on how much light is shining on the glass. If there is a lot, then the water in the dark glass will evaporate faster because the temperature will be higher. If there is no light, then it does not matter.

Water is not evaporated from a sealed bottle.

the water in the glass evaporates if the atmosphere temperature is at evaporating point of water

a puddle of water will evaporate faster because it has a larger surface area that is, it has more of its moleccules in contact with the air Yes, the more air the same amount of water can cover, the faster it will evaporate. In a glass, there is much water that gets tiny amounts of air under the surface and not enough to evaporate. If the same amount of water was poured on a level flat surface (no puddle), it would evaporate very quickly.

The water on the floor has more area exposed to the air it means glass or walls of container or walls of glass restrict water to expose to air rapidly like water on the floor has more area to evaporate......

No, water or water vapour can not pass through a sealed glass jar.

Water evaporates from anywhere theres water...bodies of water, as in lakes, oceans, a glass, ect

YES! Because when you heat the mixture of water and glass beads up at boiling temperature, the water will evaporate and leave the glass beads behind. =-)

It will evaporate. The rate is going to be dependant upon the relative humidity in the air. The lower the humidity, the faster it will evaporate.

It will evaporate and because of the evaporation the glass will get lighter.

The surface molecules of the water will evaporate. As the kinetic energy increases the water molecules become more free, which causes the water to evaporate.

Leave a glass of water outside on a sunny day, the water will evaporate *soak up* leaving the salt in the glass.

If you leave water with sugar in it outside, the water will evaporate, leaving behind the sugar

At higher temperatures, water will evaporate faster. So, depending on the temperature outside, it may evaporate faster, or slower, than inside.At higher temperatures, water will evaporate faster.

If the bottle is very good sealed evaporation is impossible.
