Hello, I'm the sun. I'm going to be showing you how thermal energy affects the whole water cycle.
Thermal Energy is the total potential and kinetic energy of the particles in an object.
Now I'm evaporating. I'm gaining thermal energy and dust particles and I will turn into clouds. See you in a bit.
I'm heated the water so it's going up as a gas.
I'm water right now in my liquid form currently.
Hi I'm water, but I'm in the form of a cloud right now. Myself and the other pollutants in the air are in clouds, but soon we'll lose thermal energy because I will go into a liquid form soon.
This process up here is called condensation. I'm going down right now. See you in a bit.
I just fell as a liquid and went down as runoff off into the water through a process called accumulation. Gravity pulls the water down as precipitation.
Then the same process happens again because water is never gone.
Sublimation is the process when a solid turns into a gas. Take dry ice as an example.
Transpiration is when the water vapor comes from the tree/plant and into the same process as normal water vapor from ocean or any other place.
That's basically all you need to know about the water cycle. Water is never actually gone, it's just in different forms. Water changes forms because it loses thermal energy, and gains it.
