Have you ever wondered what pre teens like me learn in school ? Well it’s your lucky day because I will tell you about what I learned in science. I learned about water evaporation.
Did you know that if you 40 ml in 2 cups that they would be balanced? If you somehow happen to put a lid on one of these cups they will not be equal at all. This is because the cup with no lid’s water evaporated into the atmosphere. Evaporation is when water changes state from liquid to gas so it looks like it disappeared but it’s still in the atmosphere.
Here are the steps of how water evaporates. First, the energy from the sun heats up the water. Second, the heat causes the water in the ocean to evaporate from a liquid to a vapor into the clouds. Third, the water condenses into the clouds. After that it precipitates which means it turns back into liquid state and that is when it starts to rain. Finally the water goes back into the ground.
Learning about evaporation at school helped me to understand how it rains. I am surprised that you don’t need a lot of wind to make rain because I used to think that you needed to have wind for it to rain. But sometimes when it does storm there is a lot of wind.
I hope you guys learned something new with me today.
