Watercycle3

  1. 1. The Water Cycle
  2. 2. The Sun <ul><li>The sun’s energy is necessary to power the water cycle. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Evaporation <ul><li>The sun warms the water in the ocean, causing it to change from water (liquid) to water vapor (gas). </li></ul>
  4. 4. Condensation <ul><li>Once the warm gas hits the cooler air it changes back into a liquid and forms a cloud. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Tiny water droplets bounce around in the cloud. As they hit each other, they stick together and become larger. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Precipitation <ul><li>Once they become so heavy, the cloud can no longer hold them. It begins to precipitate. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Precipitation can be: <ul><li>Rain </li></ul><ul><li>Snow </li></ul><ul><li>Sleet </li></ul><ul><li>Hail </li></ul>
  8. 8. Precipitation collects in: <ul><li>Rivers </li></ul><ul><li>Lakes </li></ul><ul><li>Oceans </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Then what? Right! It starts all over again! That is why it is called a cycle. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Sun warms ocean water causing it to EVAPORATE. Water vapor CONDENSES to form clouds. Clouds become very heavy before beginning to PRECIPITATE. Precipitation collects in rivers, lakes, and oceans. The sun warms ocean water… </li></ul>
