I'm curious about the equilibrium of evaporation and condensation. Given that the surface area of a dehumidifier's evaporation coil at 4C is proportional to the rate of condensation, how would the rate of evaporation and condensation of 4C water relate to its surface area?
Is there a condition, such as a warm humid room, where a pool of 4C water would increase in volume? Or, would evaporation always be dominant?
I can understand how rain droplets form but, they have a tiny surface area. As the surface area of a pool of water increases, could net condensation occur?
