Condensation commonly occurs when a vapor is cooled. Water vapor

from air which naturally condenses on cold surfaces into liquid

water is called dew. Water vapor will only condense onto another

surface when that surface is cooler than the temperature of the

water vapor, or when the water vapor equilibrium in air, i. e.

saturation humidity, has been exceeded. When water vapor condenses

onto a surface, a net warming occurs on that surface.
