The water cycle 1 The water cycle 1 Presentation Transcript

  • The water cycle By Katherine kemps
  • Let’s break it down the water cycle includes transpiration, condensation, precipitation, surface runoff, accumulation, and evaporation.
  • Transpiration • Transpiration is the process of water movement through a plant and its evaporation from aerial parts, such as from leaves but also from stems and flowers.
  • Condensation • Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from gas phase into liquid phase. It can also be defined as the change in the state of water vapor to liquid water when in contact with any surface.
  • Precipitation • precipitation is any product of the condensation of atmospheric water vapor that falls under gravity. The main forms of precipitation include drizzle, rain, sleet, snow, and hail.
  • Surface runoff • Surface runoff is the water flow that occurs when the soil is infiltrated to full capacity and excess water from rain, melt water, or other sources flows over the land.
  • Accumulation • Accumulation is the process of surface runoff going into lakes, rivers, streams, or other big bodies of water.
  • Evaporation • Evaporation is the process of a liquid turning into a gas.
  • Questions • In what process does a liquid turn into a gas? • answer= evaporation • In what process does water move through plants? • Answer= transpiration
