  1. The Water Cycle
    Condensation means : Water which collects as a cold surface when water vapour is in contact with it.

    Evaporation means :The changing of a liquid into a gas, often under the influence of heat (as in the boiling of water.

    Infiltration means: when the rain hits a surface and the surface absorbs the water and than touches the soil and plants ,flowers ,grass and trees .

    Precipitation means: when the clouds form rain ,hail,sleet and snow.

    In the Water Cycle, water from oceans, lakes, swamps, rivers, plants, can turn into water vapour. Water vapour condenses into millions of tiny droplets that form clouds. Clouds lose their in the form of rain or snow, which is called Precipitation.
