Water vapor gaseous form of water
Groundwater water that fills the cracks and spaces in underground soil and rock layers
Polar molecule a molecule that has electrically charged areas; for example: water
Surface tension the tightness across the surface of water that is caused by the polar molecules pulling on each other
Capillary action combined force of attraction among water molecules and with the molecules of surrounding materials
Solution a mixture that forms when one substance dissolves another substance
Solvent the substance that does the dissolving in a solution
Solute the substance that gets dissolved in a solution

Hydrophobic water fearing; nonpolar molecules; does not like to mix with water; for example: oil
Hydrophilic water loving; polar molecules; likes to mix with water; for example: sugar
Specific heat the amount of heat needed to increase the temperature of a certain mass of a substance by 1˚C (water has a high specific heat; requires a lot of heat to warm it up)
Water cycle the continuous process by which water moves through the living and nonliving parts of the environment; this process is driven by the sun’s energy
Transpiration the process by which plants release water vapor through their leaves
Cloud formation form as water vapor cools and condenses on tiny dust particles in the air
