Ways making evaporation faster: 1.temperature is high 2.humidity is low 3.the exposed surface area of the wet part is large 4.air around it is moving(wind)

What evaporates faster water or Acetone?

At standard temperature and pressure in a normal atmosphere, acetone will evaporate faster than water. Evaporation rates of various liquids are frequently specified relative to the evaporation rate of butyl acetate at 20 C. By that measurement, the evaporation rate of acetone is 5.6 and the evaporation rate of water is 0.3.


What is the normal rate of evaporetion?

The normal rate of evaporation is dependent on many factors. First, every type of molecule has a different rate of evaporation. For example, acetone has an evaporation rate of 3.0 while water has an evaporation rate of 0.3. You can find a complete listing of each molecule's evaporation rate at your local library. You can also find this information in most laboratories as well.


Why ether and acetone are kept in a cool places?

Both are highly volatile and flammable. Keeping them cool reduces their evaporation rate and the chance of ignition.


Liquids like ether and acetone are kept in cool place why?

Since ether and acetone are both rather volatile (evaporate easily; have a high vapor pressure), they are kept in a cool place to limit or reduce the rate of evaporation.


What happens if acetone is kept open?

the acetone inside the bottle will disappear (acetone-carbon dioxide (co2)) or (liquid to gas)-(evaporation also known as sumblimation)


What happens to the rate if evaporation of a liquid as the liquid is cooled?

Rate of evaporation depends on temperature. As Temp decreases, so does the rate of evaporation.


How a warm day affect rate of evaporation?

Theory of gas diffusion coefficient of acetone using winkelmann method?

The theory of gas diffusion coefficient of acetone using the winkelmann method is to diffuse the gas into a volatile liquid. This can be done by confining the liquid in a small narrow tube and observing the rate of evaporation.


How does increase in temperature surface area wind speed affect evaporation?

These are all variables used to calculate evaporation rate: The larger the surface area the higher the evaporation (rate) The higher the wind speed the higher the evaporation (rate) The higher the temperature the higher the evaporation (rate) The higher the relative humidity the lower the evaporation (rate)


How does temperature affect the rate of evaporation?

Is acetone evaporation from skin endothermic or exothermic?

Evaporation of anything requires the absorption of heat and therefore is endothermic, plus delta H.

What is the evaporation rate in California?

The evaporation rate in California is constantly changing. This is because of humidity and other environmental factors that play a role on evaporation.


How does the quality of water affect the rate of evaporation. Should it be considered for determining the rate of evaporation?

How does the humidity affect the rate of evaporation?

at a given temperature, the higher the humidity, the lower the evaporation rate. the evaporation rate drops to zero when humidity is at 100 percent. in a practical case, evaporation will cool the water so that complicates the relationship.


In a dynamic equilibrium between the liquid state and the gas state what is the true about the rate of evaporation?

the rate of evaporation will be equal to the rate of condensation


Does the rate of evaporation of a liquid decrease as the temperature decreases?

Yes, the evaporation rate slows at lower temperatures.
