What would happen if the Sun is removed from the water cycle?
The water cycle would not include precipitation but would continue with groundwater flow.
The water cycle would no longer occur because the Sun provides the energy for evaporation and transpiration.
The water cycle would no longer occur because the Sun provides energy for the formation of clouds.
The water cycle would not include evaporation and transpiration but would continue with condensation.
A student draws a model to represent the precesses involved in the water cycle, as shown. To which process is the formation of clouds related?
The image shows various stages in the water cycle. During which stage does water flow back towards the sea as runoff?
On Earth, what process generates most of the water vapor?
Rain and snow are two different forms of precipitation that fall on Earth's surface. Which factor is responsible for there being different forms of precipitation?
What is precipitation?
Sweat from our bodies on hot days
Warm rain but not cold snow or sleet

What is another name or synonym for the water cycle?
What is the energy source that drives the water cycle?
The moon T
The heat from our home in the winter all around the world
he heat generated solely from the core of the earth
What are formed when water vapor condenses?
The movement caused within a fluid by the tendency of hotter and therefore less dense material to rise, and colder, denser material to sink under the influence of gravity, which consequently results in transfer of heat. ____________________
