Problem 15CQ

Problem 15CQ

Why does condensation form most rapidly on the coldest object in a room—for example, on a glass of ice water?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 15CQ

When the water vapor comes in contact with a cool object such as glass, the water molecules lose energy. After losing the energy, the water vapor gets condensed on the surface of the glass.

Warm air can absorb more moisture from the cold object than the warm object. This is the reason why condensation occurs rapidly on the coldest object.
