Education 261 0 Water Cycle Quiz by Quizaza team 4 months ago 0 The water cycle helps to maintain the Earth's climate by transporting energy around the planet.The sun provides warmth and light that is necessary for life on Earth. This energy travels through the atmosphere and warms the surface of the Earth. Some of this energy escapes back into space, while some is used to evaporate water from lakes, oceans, and other sources. When water vapor rises into the air, it carries with it the heat that was originally absorbed from the sun.This process helps to cool down the Earth's surface temperature. As precipitation falls back to Earth, it brings with it new moisture that helps to regulate temperatures in different parts of the world.The water cycle is usually portrayed as a simple circular cycle of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. Although this may be an effective metaphor, the reality is considerably more complex. Water's pathways and effects in Earth's ecosystems are quite intricate, and their nature isn't completely known. 1What is the correct order of the water cycle?Choose an answer Water vapor, rain, cloud Rain, cloud, water vapor Water vapor, cloud, rain 2During what part of the water cycle does water vapor turn into liquid droplets?Choose an answer Condensation Run off Precipitation 3What must happen to water vapor in order for it to turn into liquid droplets?Choose an answer It must be cooled It must be pushed by wind It must remain the same temperature 4How do clouds form from water vapor?Choose an answer Evaporation then run off Condensation then precipitation Precipitation then condensation 5The class created models of the water cycle in plastic bags. Which would represent the precipitation stage of the water cycle?Choose an answer The water droplets running down the side of the bag The amount of sunlight heating the water The water vapor at the top of the bag 6What would happen if less water evaporated from the oceans?Choose an answer Ocean levels would decrease and there would be less precipitation Ocean levels would decrease and there would be more precipitation Ocean levels would increase and there would be less precipitation 7Where does the energy that powers the water cycle come from?Choose an answer Animals Electrical outlets The sun 8What is the correct term for moisture that falls to the ground from clouds?Choose an answer Precipiation Hibernation Condensation 9True or False: condensation is part of the water cycle.Choose an answer True False 10What is the correct term for rising water vapor meeting colder air and turning back into water droplets?Choose an answer Dehyderation Condensation Precipitation 11What is the only thing in nature that can be a solid, liquid or a gas?Choose an answer Water Helium Hydrogen 12What are the drops of water that form on cool surfaces during the night called?Choose an answer Dew Snow Steam 13When gas changes to a liquid it is called __________.Choose an answer Condensation Precipitation Evaporation 14Mark notices a puddle of water on his way home from school.The next day the puddle is gone.What most likely happened to the puddle of water?Choose an answer It condensed It evaporated It melted 15As time goes by, and water goes through the water cycle again and again, the amount of water on Earth__________.Choose an answer Decreases Stays the same Increases 16The water that was around when many hundreds of years ago___________.Choose an answer Is the same water we use today Is about half way gone Would be really dirty if it were still around 17Once water makes it all the way through the water cycle,the water___________.Choose an answer Has finished that cycle and moves onto a different cycle Disappears Starts to cycle over again 18An ice cube placed in sunlight melts quickly. Which best explains this event?Choose an answer The sun makes heat The ice cube looks clear The ice cube is a solid 19The gas form of waterChoose an answer Water vapor Condensation Evaporation 20The constant movement of water from Earths surface to the atmosphere and back to Earths surfaceChoose an answer Precipitation Water vapor Water cycle 21What is the process in which clouds let water go as rainfall called?Choose an answer Condensation Evaporation Sublimation 22Which human activity can alter the water cycle:Choose an answer Deforestation Digging Building 23How many steps are there in the water cycle?Choose an answer 2 4 6 24Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds.Choose an answer True False 25How do plants intake water?Choose an answer By precipitation Through leaves Through roots 26When clouds get too heavy to hold water in the water cycle, what happens?Choose an answer The water falls to the Earth The water evaporates Another cloud forms 27What is tapped into when digging a well looking for water in the water cycle?Choose an answer An underground aquifer An underground river An irrigation ditch 28Which stage is NOT part of the water cycle?Choose an answer Emancipation Collection Evaporation 29Considering the water cycle how old could the water be in glaciers and ice caps?Choose an answer Millions of years Billions of years Thousands of years 30Condensation is when warm vapor rises, gets cold and does what In the water cycle?Choose an answer Gathers in clouds Falls out of the sky Warms up again Share on social media I scored [myscore] and got: [myresult] on this quiz: Water Cycle Quiz No related tests.
