The Water Cycle: A Comparison
A BATHTUB is a body-sized reservoir filled with a mass collection of water used for cleaning one's body.
ACCUMULATION: collections of water in ponds, lakes, oceans
A pipe that transports waste and water for sanitation
water seeps into ground, through the soil and gathers in AQUIFERS
Function of SHOWER: to bathe yourself while water is blasted at your body from above. when heated (warm) water is used most times water vapour (steam) appears - this is evaporation.
EVAPORATION: liquid water converts into water vapour by the application of THERMAL ENERGY.
As steam (water vapour) rises it hits the CEILING and cools gathering in small droplets.
water vapour changes into liquid as it cools.
TAP: Water flows out of faucet or spout in to a container.
PRECIPITATION: water is released back into the water cycle after condensation usually through rain, snow and hail or sleet.
When you flush the toilet water swirls around the bowl to reach it's final destination.
The variety of ways by which water moves across the land to reach a reservoir.
