How do evaporation and boiling of a liquid primarily differ? A) In speed and product B) In temperature and speed C) In pressure and product D) In speed and pressure (B) Evaporation is a vaporization that happens slowly across the surface of a liquid. It can occur at any temperature. Boiling, on the other hand, occurs rapidly throughout a liquid when the temperature of the liquid reaches its boiling point.
