Factors Affecting Evaporation From Water Surface22nd August 2019
Factors Affecting Evaporation From Water Surface
5 major factors affecting evaporation from water surface are as follows:
1. Area of Wate Surface
If the surface of the water is large, the evaporation will be more. But if the water surface is small, then evaporation will be less.
2. Depth of Water
If the depth of water is more, evaporation will be less, but less depth of water causes more evaporation.
If there is more humidity in the atmosphere, the evaporation will be less.
If the temperature of the atmosphere is more, the saturation vapor naturally increases as well as the rate of evaporation also increases and vice versa.
5. Wind Velocity
If the rate of wind flow is more, the loss of evaporation will be also more and vice versa.
