The Water Cycle
Transcript of The Water Cycle
Evaporation, is when the sun's heat energy warms the water on Earth , and turns into vapor, then rises up into the air. The water can come from different bodies of water like oceans, lakes, ponds, puddles, rivers,etc.
Precipitation, occurs when clouds have gathered too much water to hold and water droplets fall from the sky like rain, hail, sleet, and snow.
Condensation happens when the water vapor in the air cools down and turns to tiny droplets of liquid then these droplets come together and form clouds.
Transpiration is the movement of water to the atmosphere by plants.
Runoff is the transport of water to oceans.
Groundwater is water that is found underground.
What Would Happen Without One Part Of The Water Cycle ?
The Water Cycle wouldn't function as well as it does with all the stages, for example without evaporation the water wouldn't go up and evaporate, then it wouldn't condense and precipitate.
What we know about the water cycle !
We know that our water gets recycled every time it goes through the water cycle .
Precipitation occurs when too much water has been collected in the clouds
The water cycle can never stop unless we don't have anymore water.
We know that the water cycle can start at any stage, because it has no starting or ending point.
" How does water change each day? "
Water changes each day by the water cycle. Water goes through the water cycle stages which are evaporation, condensation, precipitation, runoff , ground water, and transpirtation, without these we can't live, plants won't grow, and we wouldn't have water to drink.
Yes, the water cycle can start at any stage, because it has no starting or ending point.
Can the water cycle begin at any stage ?
FUN FACTS ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
There is 75% of water in the world, but 1% is drinkable and 2% is currently frozen.
Everyday in the U.S. we drink 110 million gallons of water.
There are 40 trillion gallons of water in the sky.
Water expands by 9% when it's frozen.
Ice is lighter than water which is why it floats when it's placed on water.
The water that the dinosaurs drank is the same water we drink today.
Know the water cycle ??
