Textbook Problem

Describe, on a microscopic basis, the processes of evaporation and condensation. Which process requires an input of energy? Why?

Interpretation Introduction


On a microscopic basis the processes of evaporation and condensation must be described.

Which process requires input of energy and why must be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Evaporation and condensations are two phase change processes of liquids.


When heat energy is supplied, the kinetic energy of liquid molecules increase and the intermolecular distance also increase. As a result, the intermolecular force becomes weaker and the liquid is converted to vapor.

Kinetic energy of molecules is reduced...
