Evaporation
Sun's heat turns liquid water into water vapour back into the atmosphere
1 of 8
Condensation
Water vapour forms into tiny water droplets as the air carrying it cools, forming clouds
2 of 8
Transpiration
Plants breath water vapour into the air
3 of 8
Precipiation
The tiny water droplets collide until they fall to the ground as rain or snow
4 of 8
Overland flow (run-off)
Rain falls onto the ground and flows on the surface to rivers and lakes
5 of 8
Through flow
Rainwater soaks into the soil (infiltration) and flows slowly through it to rivers
