Evaporation/Condensation question

  1. Aug 1, 2011 #1
    Hi, I was mowing my lawn today and I was drinking some water out of a water bottle and the bottle was sweating. My question is could my sweat be on the water bottle? I was thinking this was possible because my sweat would evaporate and the the water on the bottle is just condensed water. So I was think my sweat could have condensed onto the bottle after it evaporated. Is this true?

    Certainly! But just the water in it...

    You might be able to determine from the pattern of undisturbed condensation (from the bottle) the specific areas that you touched.
