(Cycles of water)

(The basic principle of how water moves on earth and how it is evaporated without human influence. Between dams and man made lakes the world or mother nature actually has its on way of managing its own water and its on purification system as well other than what humans bring to the table. http://thewritedirection.net/apaguide.net/apaguide.pdf)

History of (Water Cycle)

(Really no one discovered the theory of the water cycle its just something the earth has done since its creation. the water cycle is broken up into a few parts, Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation, and Transpiration. When water gets evaporated into the air it makes clouds which are just alot of water molecules combined together. In 1802 an Englishmen Luke Howard was the creator of the cloud naming system that we still use today.Condensation is the form of clouds and where watermolecules actually turn into liquid. Precipitation is the form of the water molecules in the form of rain, snow, or hail. Last but not least transpiration is the process in which the water vapor is carried through plants in small pores and released into the atmosphere. )

Application of (Water Cycle)

(The way we use the water cycle is very simple and we use it in every day life, from watering our plants to suages, and wells if you live out in the country. Run-off water most of the time goes into our streams and lakes that we get our water for showers and washing our cars and simple everyday stuff like that. Without the water cycle our planet could not survive and prosper but luckily it works like clockwork in mother nature.)
