At what temperature will water evaporate?

Heat (energy) is necessary for evaporation to occur. Energy is used to break the bonds that hold water molecules together, which is why water easily evaporates at the boiling point (212° F, 100° C) but evaporates much more slowly at the freezing point.

People also ask, does water evaporate at all temperatures?

Even at low temperatures, there are some water molecules are have enough energy to escape and that's why evaporation in water can occur at any temperature (yes, even if the water is in ice). When the temperature increases, there are more molecules with higher kinetic energy and thus, more water can evaporate.

Beside above, how long does it take a drop of water to evaporate? This is an experiment that shows the required time to naturally evaporate one drop of water. It takes at least 3.5 hours to do it, and all of the pictures are recorded in this time lapse video.

Similarly one may ask, does water have to be 100 degrees to evaporate?

If the relative humidity is less than 100%, water will evaporate into the air, becoming water vapor. This means that at 100°C, you can have pure water vapor at atmospheric pressure. This is why water boils at 100°C at sea level—a bubble of steam can form below the surface of the water.

Does water evaporate at 0 degrees?

Water less than 0 can evaporate or sublimate. It depends on what is dissolved in it, or how pure it is. Pure water freezes at -48 C So liquid water can still evaporate well below 0 c. The trip state of water is 0.
