The Water Cycle
is basically 4 main steps going around a cycle that goes for eternity
The main step that triggers the water cycle is evaporation. It is a process where liquid water turns into water vapor.
As the water evaporates into a water vapour, it then ascends up to the atmosphere. At high altitudes, the water vapour turns back to liquid or ice because the temperature is low.
This is called "Condensation"
When the clouds can't hold the water vapours anymore, it will fall down back into the oceans, rivers, lakes where it was originally evaporated from.
Precipitation can also come as snow when the air around the precipitation is below 0˚ degrees celcius.
As water precipitates it is absorbed by the soil. When the roots of the plants absorb the water and the extra water comes as the plant's "sweat".
