The water cycle or hydrologic cycle describes the movement of water on, above and below the surface of the earth. This endless cycle of evaporation, condensation and precipitation brings us fresh water, reshapes the surface of the earth and washes nutrients to new areas. Even the climate is influenced by the heating and cooling effects as water moves through its different phases of solid, liquid and gas.
My experience was similar, except that the periods of time between overvaluing and devaluing were shorter.

Answer When fuel burns it changes to carbon dioxide and water vapor. When the exhaust pipe and muffler assembly is cool enough, the water vapor will condense and drip from the tailpipe. What you're seeing is normal. The condensed water, mixed with the carbon dioxide, can pool in the bottom of an …

Most of the water cycle takes place over the ocean because that is where the solar energy from the sun can be absorbed fastest by water. At the equator, The oceans absorb vast amounts of energy and liquid water is converted to vapor. This creates a convection cycle when the warmer vapor rises in…

Condensation is water turning from water vapor (gas) into its liquid form. This happens in rain clouds. Clouds are water vapor and when there is too much vapor or it is cool enough the vapor will condense and it will begin to rain. You can also see condensation in the early morning. This is the dew…

Clouds are possibly the most interesting (and beautiful) of all weather phenomena. While there is a wide variety of cloud shapes and sizes, they are all made of the same thing: condensed water or ice. The air in the cloud has been cooled (almost always because it is rising) and it can no longer hold…

The Sun warms the Earth through radiation. Water evaporates from the Earth's surface because of the heat. Water changes state to become water vapour. Water vapour condenses on the cooler surface (the sky) to form water droplets. Water droplets gather and become heavy. Clouds form and becomes rai…
