Liquid to gas

    I was just curious... what are ways for liquids to evaporate and end up as gasses? (Apart from increasing the temperature)

    The other obvious way is to decrease the pressure. Even on cold days, water or ice will evaporate if the air is dry, since the partial pressure of the water is low.
