The water cycle needs energy in order to work. This energy comes from: the earth. the sun the clouds. water.
When water particles absorb energy, move faster, and becomes a vapor, this is called: evaporation. condensation. precipitation. waterization.
3. Clouds are an example of a. evaporation. b. condensation. c. precipitation. d. waterization.
4. Three things that are needed in order to have weather are: a. sun, water, air b. rain, hail, sleet c. snow, water, ice d. atmosphere, hydrosphere, rain
A. Sun, Water, Air
. The layer of air that surrounds the earth is the a. lithosphere. b. crust. c. atmosphere. d. hydrosphere.
. Temperature is measured with a a.. barometer b. anemometer. c. hygrometer. d. thermometer.
Which answer best describes why clouds move? a. The water cycle causes clouds to evaporate and precipitate. b. The sun’s uneven heating of the Earth’s surface creates winds. c. The North and South Poles pull clouds toward them. d. The clouds migrate to the right climates.
B. The sun’s uneven heating of the Earth’s surface creates winds.
A large “chunk” of air is called a. a front. b. a condensation. c. an air mass. d. a cloud.
C. an air mass.
The day to day change in atmospheric conditions is called: a. weather. b. climate. c. a cold front. d. precipitation.

Water disappears from puddles partly because of a. precipitation. b. condensation. c. evaporation. d. waterization.
Water moves from the air to the land, through rivers to oceans, and back to the air. How does water move from the air to the land? a. It falls as precipitation. b. It forms as ground water. c. It evaporates from the sky. d. It forms as glaciers in Antarctica.
a. It falls as precipitation.
