Water Facts


Did you know that water, a truly unique substance, exists naturally on Earth in three distinct forms: liquid, solid, and gas? This peculiarity allows water to move around the Earth, a process we call the water cycle. Consider this: the average water molecule spends less than a week in our atmosphere, and a single drop of water contains billions of these molecules. Each water molecule comprises two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, forming the familiar H2O.


The water cycle consists of 7 processes: evaporation, condensation, sublimation, precipitation, transpiration, runoff, and infiltration. 


Why not take a moment to explore each stage of the water cycle? Understanding this natural process can deepen your appreciation for the world around us.
