Why does condensation occur?

Condensation is the change of water from its gaseous form (water vapor) into liquid water. Condensation generally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools and looses its capacity to hold water vapor. As a result, excess water vapor condenses to form cloud droplets.

What happens in condensation and what causes it?

It is the process which creates clouds, and so is necessary for rain and snow formation as well. Condensation in the atmosphere usually occurs as a parcel of rising air expands and cools to the point where some of the water vapor molecules clump together faster than they are torn apart from their thermal energy.

What happens in a condensation?

Water droplets run down the lid and falls back into the pot. That is simply what happens during condensation. Condensation the process by which water vapor (gas) in the atmosphere turns into water (liquid state). It is the opposite of evaporation.
