Use the imformation above to answer the following questions.
NOTE: Not all information is in the text above, but some questions will be quite easy.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is evaporation mostly caused from?

    • A.

      Bodies of Water

    • B.

      Land

    • C.

      Animals

    • D.

      The Clouds

    Correct Answer
    A. Bodies of Water
    Explanation
    Evaporation is mostly caused by bodies of water. When the sun's heat reaches the surface of water, it increases the water's temperature, causing the water molecules to gain energy and become more active. As a result, some of these molecules gain enough energy to break free from the liquid and turn into water vapor, which rises into the atmosphere. This process is known as evaporation and is the primary source of water vapor in the air.

    What does liquid turn into once it is evaporated?

    • A.

      Gas

    • B.

      Water Vapor

    • C.

      Air

    • D.

      Both Answers 1 and 2

    Correct Answer
    D. Both Answers 1 and 2
    Explanation
    When a liquid is evaporated, it turns into gas. This is because the process of evaporation involves the conversion of liquid molecules into vapor, which then disperses into the surrounding air. Water vapor is a specific type of gas that is formed when water evaporates. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both Answers 1 and 2" as both gas and water vapor are the end products of evaporation.

  • 3. 

    Evaporation caused from plants is called what?

    Correct Answer
    evapotranspiration
    Evapotranspiration
    Explanation
    Evapotranspiration refers to the combined process of evaporation from the soil and transpiration from plants. As plants take up water from the soil through their roots, it is transported to the leaves and then evaporates into the atmosphere through tiny openings called stomata. This process plays a crucial role in the water cycle and helps regulate the temperature and humidity of the surrounding environment. Therefore, evapotranspiration is the correct term to describe the evaporation caused by plants.

  • 4. 

    What is evaporation?

    Correct Answer
    Heat turning a liquid into a vapor or gas.
    Heat turning a liquid into a gas or vapor.
    Heat turning a liquid into a gas or vapor
    Heat turning a liquid into a vapor or gas
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Heat turning a liquid into a vapor or gas." This explanation accurately describes the process of evaporation, where heat causes a liquid to transform into a gaseous state.

    Evaporation causes fog

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Evaporation is the process by which a liquid, such as water, changes into a gas. When warm air rises and comes into contact with cooler air, the water vapor in the warm air condenses and forms tiny water droplets or ice crystals, resulting in the formation of fog. Therefore, it is true that evaporation causes fog.

    The water cycle would do fine without evaporation (or any other part in the water cycle)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Just one removal of any step in the water cycle, and it would fall to pieces.

    Evaporation was and still does help out our evrery-day life

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Evaporation was used and sometimes still is used to dry clothes. Try to thnk of ways evaporation helps your evertday life.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Water evapoerates in minuetes

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    How much time evaporation takes depends on the amount of water being evaporated, but the least amount of time evaporation would take would be about a hour.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Think of what would happen to the water cycle and the earth if evaporation did not exist. Make sure to have an introduction, supporting details, and a conclusion.
