Effects of temperature, wind, or humidity on the rate of evaporation?

Evaporation is one of the most common methods used to dry wet material. You have seen hair dryers or dryers for laundry, but that's not all. Evaporation is the foundation or a major part of many industries. Billions of dollars every year are spent on evaporation or related equipment.

Drying is a method of preservation for fruits, vegetables and some other foods. Evaporation is not always for drying! It is also used to make concentrates such as orange juice concentrate.

This project will make you familiar with many applications of drying as well as the factors that affect evaporation. Maybe you will come up with the idea of buying cheap wetlands and swamps and selling them after drying them up.

Project description
Design and perform experiments for evaporation in different temperature, wind speed, humidity and other possible physical conditions. Record and analyze the results. Possible questions or titles for your projects may be one of the following?

How does the temperature affect the rate of evaporation?

How does wind affect the rate of evaporation?

How does moisture affect the rate of evaporation?
