I will teach you about the water cycle. It start off by evaporation how evaporation works by solar radiation or knows as the sun . If there was water on the side of the street the sun will dry up and turn in to water vapor and goes to the clouds.
When water vapor rises it cools down.When the water vapor goes into the clouds and start to get density.This is called condensation it turns it into snow or rain.
Infiltration is when rain falls on soil and then the nearness plant root's absorb the water. The roots bring the water into the stem then brings the water into the leaves.then the sun will turn that water to water vapor.
precipitation is when snow,rain hail and sleet fall out of the sky.
when cloud become full with rain or snow it let all of it down this is called precipitation.
When rain fall it can land anywhere. If rain land on a river it is called runoff and it will flow down river and eventually goes into ocean or lakes.If water land on dirt the gravity will move the water into a plants roots and then the stem and then on the water will go on the leaf and the sun will dry it up and it restarts.
