WHEN A PERSON USES A SHOWER THE MIRROR GETS MISTY, WHY?
because the heat from the shower has turned H2O into vapour. Kinetic energy moves the particles which hit the colder mirror, and condenses into a liquid.

WHAT IS EVAPORATION?
when water turns from liquid to gas. It requires energy and cools down surfaces.

WHAT IS CONDENSATION?
when water turns from a gas to a liquid. when gas particles hit a cold surface it condenses
