It flows slowly downhill under its own weight. Global warming Acid rain Rain made more acidic by air pollution, especially from burning fossil fuels in homes, power stations, and motor vehicles. Condensation Process of a gas turning into a liquid, such as water vapour condensing into water droplets. Convection Air mass Vertical circulation of a liquid or gas due to warm regions rising and cool regions sinking. Body of air with fairly uniform temperature and humidity stretched over many miles within the lowest part of the atmosphere.

Deep in the intestines, digestive juices further break down food. Almost all the water found in these juices is recovered in the large intestine. Flexible joints The freedom to move easily comes from joints in the skeleton and the muscles used to bend them. Bones would grind together and wear away at the joint without watery synovial fluid. This is secreted by a membrane to lubricate joints. The gaps on this X-ray of a knee joint are full of synovial fluid. Working up a sweat Water leaves the body in four ways.

In some developed countries, more than half of the entire water supply is used by industries. Cooling towers In power stations, the process of burning fossil fuels releases heat. This turns large amounts of liquid water into steam, which drives turbines to generate electricity. Inside a power station’s cooling towers, evaporation cools waste water so that it can be returned to the river from where it originally came. Petrochemical works Deep below the seabed and some parts of the ground lie petroleum oil and natural gas.
