The Water Cycle

This is a diagram of the Water Cycle. The energy source comes from the sun and goes to the water sources, causing them to evaporate. The water comes from oceans, run offs(water that runs off from mountains and hills), lakes, ground water, persperation, urination and seas. The water first evaporates because of the energy source. When the water vapor (gas) gets to the sky it forms a cloud and turns back to liquid because its colder higher up in the atmosphere. When it gets too heavy for the cloud, it rains – or precipitates. It can take different forms while precipitaing like rain, snow, hail or sleet. The water then falls back down to where it came from and the cycle starts all over again.
