How will you show that the process of evaporation depends on the nature of the liquid?
From the activity given below, it can be shown that the process of evaporation depends on the nature of liquid. Take 10 mL ether (a low boiling point liquid, 34°C) in a test tube and 10 mL water (boiling point 100°C) in another test tube. Keep both the test tubes near the window for sometime. It is observed that ether evaporates in a shorter time. Thus, lower the boiling point of the liquid, higher is its rate of evaporation.
