  • Water cycle helps in the continuous circulation of water on, above and below the surface of the earth. It includes process like evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.
  • Evaporation is the process by which the water from the water bodies changes into vapour due to continuous heat during the daytime.
  • Condensation is the process by which the vapours turnĀ into water droplets and cools down and forms clouds.
