You want to wear your favourite shirt to a party, but the problem is that it is still wet after a wash. What steps would you take to dry it faster?

Answer :

To dry the shirt faster we should increase the rate of evaporation. Following are steps we can take to increase the conditions of evaporation:

(a) As we know that the evaporation is a surface phenomenon. We can spread the shirt such that to increase the surface area. This will help to speed up the evaporation process.


(b) By putting the shirt under the sun will increase the temperature which will further increase the evaporation.


(c) The process of evaporation can be further increased by putting it under the fan. This will move away from the particles of water vapour in the air, which will further increase the rate of evaporation.
