Water cycle information report

          The water cycle.

Intro

The water cycle is the cycle the water goes thorough to recycle.The water cycle has three forms that it can appear as : gas,liquid and solid.There are four stages to the water cycle: evaporation,condensation,precipitation and runoff.

Evaporation

One of the steps of the water cycle is evaporation.Evaporation is when the sun heat up the water and the water evaporation (turns into gas).When the sun is hotter the water evaporates quicker because the heat make thing evaporate after evaporation the next step in the water cycle is condensation.

Condensation/precipitation

Condensation happens when the temperature changes,warmer air can hold more water vapor(gas)than colder air precipitation/rain fall more in colder places and less in hotter places eg deserts. After Condensation/precipitation the next step in the water cycle is runoff/groundwater.


Runoff/groundwater

Another one of the steps of the water cycle is runoff/groundwater.Runoff is the water from precipitation that run down into lakes,rivers,seas.some runoff goes into the ground to ground.Groundwater is the water that we drink,before we drink it goes through aquifers to get cleaned.


Conclusion

The water cycle describes how water evaporates from the surface of the earth, rises into the atmosphere, cools and condenses into rain or snow in clouds, and falls again to the surface as precipitation.
