Factors Affecting Evaporation From Water Surface

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.

3. Humidity

If there is more humidity in the atmosphere, the evaporation will be less.

4. Temperature

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.
