Evaporation Science Experiments
Easy evaporation science experiments that demonstrate that a liquid can become vapour.
Evaporation is the process in which a liquid is converted to a vapour.
Demonstrate this to your children using the activities below.
Place a drop of water on the ground in a sunny place and watch it disappear. Ask the children where it goes.
Drying out experiment
You will need
2 small cloths
Soak the two cloths in water and then squeeze them out well.
The cloth in the bag stays wet because the water cannot escape into the air.
Repeat this experiment, but place one cloth in a cool place and the other in sun, wind, by a heater or fan to demonstrate that heat and wind will speed up evaporation.
Talk about what would be the best time of day to water the garden or crops to minimize the effect of evaporation. The best time is the evening or the early morning.
