A Physical Model to Help Explain Evaporation
Branca, M.; Soletta, I.
Physics Teacher, v52 n4 p226 Apr 2014
One of the basic ideas when studying science is that matter is composed of particles (atoms or molecules) and these are in a constant state of agitation. In the solid or liquid state the molecules are attracted to each other, while in the gaseous state they have sufficient energy to overcome the forces of cohesion and can move away from one another.
