The number of water molecules from the gaseous state into the liquid state also increases till the equilibrium is attained.
i.e.rate of evaporation = rate of condensation
H2O(l) ⇌ H2O (vap)
At equilibrium the pressure exerted by the water molecules at a given temperature remains constant and is called the equilibrium vapour pressure of water increases with temperature.
