A few days ago i took a test on heat and temperature ect. One of the questions was : When we say evaporation is a cooling process, we are saying that: a. surrounding air is cool b. the liquid is cooled. I chose a. because i knew that evaporation draws in energy from air to evaporate cooling the air. My support for this was that freezing releases energy warming air and melting also takes in air cooling it. At the same time i was wary that when a liquid evaporates it loses some energy from the escaping molecules that turn to gas. Anyways i would like to know what i did wrong and i have yet to have time to ask my teacher.
