The water table of that place becomes lower.
Cloud seeding is a technique that induces rain. What does the process involve?
Cloud seeding is an artificial method of introducing particles in clouds to cause rains by initiating condensation of water vapour present in the clouds.
Given in the figure are four containers that contain the same amount of water.
In which of the following containers will water evaporate the slowest?
Container S (a flask) has the smallest surface area of water exposed to the atmosphere. Thus, the rate of evaporation will be the slowest in flask S.

Why do you feel cool after you start sweating?
During summer, water, from our body as sweat. Evaporation causes cooling because water droplets present on the skin require some heat to evaporate, which they take from the body.
What causes the formation of salt from sea water?

Why does the water table of a place become lower?
The water table of a place where droughts prolong for a long period of time becomes lower because of lesser water seeping into the ground.
Why is water scarcity increasing day by day?
Water is becoming scarce due to over usage and wastage of water due to improper use.
