"Water vapour in the air" (your phrase) is just that - vapour. Not liquid droplets "dissolved" in air. You may be confused by the fact that wet steam does contain water droplets, and the steam from a ...


The evaportation rate is given by $${dM \over dt} \sim T$$ where $M$ is the amount of evaporated water and $t$ is the time. $T$ is the temperature of the water. However, $${dM \over dt} \sim Q$$ Where Q is the charge of the water, to prove my point, consider a lightning bolt impacting water. The water is split into hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis. ...
