Answer

Vaporization of an element or compound is a phase transition from the liquid phase to the gas faze. It depends on two factors, namely surface area of the liquid and volume of the liquid. In the given case, surface area for both the liquids is same. The time given for the vaporization is 2.8 days and 8.3 days for the two cases. From this we can clearly say that first dish is larger in diameter than the other.
