       It is commonly observed during the rainy season that water falling on roads and streets disappears after a few hours. Similarly, in summer, wet clothes dry up very soon. Do you know where this water goes? This water gets converted into vapor is called evaporation.
      How does evaporation take place? Every substance is made up of very small particles called molecules. These molecules are held together by strong forces of attrition called cohesive forces. These forces are opposed by the repulsive forces due to the motion of molecules. As long as the cohesive forces are far greater than the repulsive forces, the substance remains in the solid state. When the substance is heated up, it absorbs heat energy which the molecules area set up in rapid motion. This motion starts counterbalancing the cohesive force. When the repulsive force generated by the motion of molecules equals the cohesive force, matter changes from solid to liquid state. If the liquid is still heated, the molecules still move fast. When the force exceeds the cohesive force, the molecules of the liquid become free and escape into the air. It is how the liquid is converted into vapor. The liberation of the molecules from the liquid surface to the air is called evaporation.
      This explains the drying up process of clothes. If the wet clothes are put under the sun, they dry up faster because at the rate of evaporation increases with the rise in temperature. It takes place more rapidly when the air is dry. That is why clothes dry up more quickly on a dry than on a damp cloudy day.

E.Water falling on the streets disappears after a few hours

15.   What is every substance made of?

      Slang is definitely a way to distinguish you as part of a group or separate from another group. Teens use slang to show their independence from their parents, and give them and their friends a language they can call their own. Slang sometime allows them to communicate without outsiders understanding, or to show off that they belong to a particular group. Teens like to use slang words for several reasons.
     Firstly, they use slang to show their individuality. Daily teen conversations can be incomprehensible to many parents and adults. Influenced by MTV, hip-hop culture and the popularity of e-mail, teenagers shorten words, stretch definitions and pronounce term with a different style. The way talk shows their confidence.
     Secondly, they use slang because it is easier to say. They might talk the way they do with word like"coz" for"because" and "holla" for "hello" and other expressions because the words are cool and easier to use, not because they are lazy.
     Finally, they use slang for speed and usefulness, and little humor of the day. Slang flows quicker than standard language. Slang can color their vocabulary and sentences, so that they don't seem boring.
     Thus, from the reasons above, it can be concluded that teens use slang words because using their own terms is the easiest way to make the world of their own.
