The glass of cold water will try to attain equilibrium (w.r.t temperature) and absorb heat from the surroundings. As a result the moisture present around the glass will condense on to the surface of the glass and the glass gets wet.

This is caused by any cold drink. It's caused when the air outside of the glass cools down, trapping some of the water vapor, and or turning to precipitation on the outside of the glass, where it's cold.


Because the molecules in the water are really cold and since they are cold they are moving around lots which creates a lot of energy therefore making the glass sweat!


A glass of cold water leaves a wet ring on the table because the heat energy from the outside and the cold glass of water inside the cup then it begins to drip Yea its a little confusing i don't know how to explain it very well


Dew, condensation or in some cases: sweat (like when a glass of cold water gets all wet on the outside).


on a wet day the air contains too much h20 in form of vapour in it. since the inside of the car is warm and outside cold, the vapour condenses on the outer side of glass to liquid form.this water on glass we observe as steaming of glass.


Water vapor for the surrounding air is condensing onto the cold surface.


This is because the water vapour in the air condenses on the cold surface of the apple.


This is due to condensation. The cold surface of the bottle condenses the water vapor in the air (humidity) into liquid water.


Since the apple is cold, the water vapour in the air condenses on the surface of the apple. This is why it becomes wet with water.


Water from the air condensates on the glass cup. Because the air is cooling down, it can no longer hold as much humidity as it did (saturation).





There not really cold their wet it means that their hydrated. If your dogs nose is not cold and wet then it needs water.


Water wets glass because the force of adhesion between the glass molecules and water molecules is greater than the force of cohesion between the water molecules and glass molecules. Mercury does not wet glass because the force of cohesion is greater than the force of adhesion


If it is cold water, than it is cold. if it is warm water, it is normal


If it is snowing outside it is cold outside. When a person gets wet usually it makes them colder.


That is called 'condensation'. It is the result of water vapor molecules in the atmosphere coming in contact with a colder environment. The vapor molecules begin to clump together as their electron activity slows and they coalesce as moisture on the side of the glass. The opposite activity is called 'evaporation'.


Not necessarily. You could be under a glass of water or under a body of water without being wet. This is a grammatical riddle.


distillation is the process of heating up a liquid mixture (seawater, sugar in water, tea, etc) until pure water vapor rises up then condenses in the condenser tube, then runs down into a holding apparatus (beaker, etc) and that is pure water, or close to it. condensation is when water vapour in the air forms liquid water on something cold. (this is why when you have a cold glass of water, it becomes wet on the outside.)



ti is cold and wet. ti is cold and wet. ti is cold and wet. ti is cold and wet. ti is cold and wet. ti is cold and wet.


It will get wet and cold, which would be cruel.


if the humidity is wet we feel a bit cold and vice versa


B'COS THE ADHESIVE FORCE BETWEEN THE GLASS MOLECULES AND THE WATER MOLECULES IS GREATER THAN THAT OF THE COHESIVE FORCE BETWEEN THE WATER MOLECULES AND THE GLASS MOLECULES.
