How does gravity affect the water cycle?
The two things that power the water cycle are solar energy and gravity. The atmosphere is where evaporated and transpired water are stored. After it condenses, it's gravity that pulls it back to the earth in the forms of rain, snow, hail, frost, dew, and sleet. ...
