 E·vap·o·rate v. i. [imp. & p. p. Evaporated p. pr. & vb. n. Evaporating ]
 1. To pass off in vapor, as a fluid; to escape and be dissipated, either in visible vapor, or in particles too minute to be visible.
 2. To escape or pass off without effect; to be dissipated; to be wasted, as, the spirit of a writer often evaporates in the process of translation.
    To give moderate liberty for griefs and discontents to evaporate . . . is a safe way.   --Bacon.
