  • Interesting fact: Each day the sun causes about one trillion tons of water to evaporate
    • n evaporator Any apparatus used to facilitate the evaporation of the water contained in fruit, vegetable juices, saline liquids, glue, syrups, etc.; a furnace or pan used in condensing vegetable and other juices.
    • n evaporator A device for evaporating water into steam. The necessary heat is derived from live steam or from the waste gases given off by a furnace used primarily for some other purpose. Such evaporators are used on shipboard to make steam from salt water, this steam being then condensed to furnish fresh water for the boilers or for culinary purposes.
    • n evaporator A device, used in connection with gasolene-engines, to transform the liquid hydrocarbon into a gas or vapor by heat or by fine subdivision in a current of air.

These women who only scurry,
Whose news is the open cherry, the open clover?

And she does not let me sleep
And her dreams in the bright day
Make the suns evaporate
And me laugh cry and laugh
Speak when I have nothing to say

And completes it, most beautifully in summer, when a day
Evaporates on the coast, and effortlessly mirrored the sails
Pass through your sight, till you tire and cut short the last.

Although the connection between the various gas components is unclear, we suggest that the existence of an Xray corona with high pressure can effectively shield dust and cold gas from strong evaporation and stripping by the ICM, especially in hot clusters.
