Etymologies

Examples

  • Critics counter by saying that the lake may never fill up, as the water will evaporate and leech faster that it could collect, leaving behind unevaporated salt and chemicals spread out all over the desert for winds to pick up and coalesce into toxic dustclouds that will cross borders into other countries.

  • I cleaned many drawers yesterday, and cleaned the oven today and swept and rearanged and pruned and watered the patio till I had rivers of unevaporated sweat running off of my nose and pooling into my glasses.

  • The lake is believed to be on the outcrop of a petroleum-bearing stratum, and the pitch to represent the unevaporated residue of millions of tons of petroleum which have exuded from the oil-sands.

    The Economic Aspect of Geology

  • The condition of the great accumulation of snow to which glaciers are due -- that more or less of each winter's snow should be left over unmelted and unevaporated to the next -- is fully met in the Alps. There is abundant moisture brought by the winds from neighboring seas.

    The Elements of Geology

  • The consistent, the sustained, preserved _tone_ of _The Tragic Muse_, its constant and doubtless rather fine-drawn truth to its particular sought pitch and accent, are, critically speaking, its principal merit -- the inner harmony that I perhaps presumptuously permit myself to compare to an unevaporated scent.

    The Tragic Muse

  • Very small deposits of snow-flakes remain unevaporated in the forest, for many days after snow which fell at the same time in the cleared field has disappeared without either a thaw to melt it or a wind powerful enough to drift it away.

  • In the open grounds such pools are very soon dried up by the sun and wind; in the woods they remain unevaporated long enough for the water to diffuse itself laterally until it finds, in the subsoil, crevices through which it may escape, or slopes which it may follow to their outcrop or descend along them to lower strata.

  • Were the angle of maximum polarisation 76°, we should look to water or ice as the reflecting body, however inconceivable the existence in a cloudless atmosphere and a hot summer's day of unevaporated molecules (particles?) of water.

  • [2] The net result is that the air leaving the tower is saturated with water vapor and the unevaporated water leaving the cooling tower has been cooled.

  • Moreover, water is a much more valuable substance for dissipating heat than appears from the foregoing explanation; for reference to the experiment with the gas - burner will show that six and a quarter times as much heat can be absorbed by a given weight of water if it is permitted to change into steam, as if it is merely raised to the boiling-point; and since by no urging of the gas-burner can the temperature be raised above 100° C. as long as any liquid water remains unevaporated, if an excess of water is employed in an acetylene generator, the temperature inside can never -- except quite locally -- exceed 100° C., however fast the carbide be decomposed.
