Ch 30: Physical Science - Water Balance: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Water Balance chapter of this High School Physical Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about the balance of water on Earth. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the essential water balance concepts required in a typical high school physical science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school physical science work.
  • Identify the water balance concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school physical science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about water balance and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding the water cycle, runoff and infiltration, solar power or any other water balance topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their water balance unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school physical science
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about water balance simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physical science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about water balance on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives

  • Explore the processes of precipitation, evaporation and condensation
  • Explain how water is distributed across the Earth
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of solar power
  • Discover what happens during the hydrologic cycle
  • Learn about the processes of infiltration and runoff

The Water Cycle: Precipitation, Condensation, and Evaporation

1. The Water Cycle: Precipitation, Condensation, and Evaporation

This lesson discusses the processes water takes as it moves around the Earth in the water cycle. You'll get an in-depth look at condensation, precipitation, and evaporation.

The Distribution of Water on Earth

2. The Distribution of Water on Earth

Water covers most of Earth but in a variety of forms. In this video lesson you will learn about how water is distributed on Earth, though you may be surprised to find out just how little of it we can access!

What is Solar Power? - Uses, Advantages & Disadvantages

3. What is Solar Power? - Uses, Advantages & Disadvantages

The sun provides us with a constant energy source. In this video lesson, you'll learn how we can harness solar power from the sun. We'll also take a look at the pros and cons of this renewable energy resource.

How Evaporation & Transpiration Contribute to the Hydrologic Cycle

4. How Evaporation & Transpiration Contribute to the Hydrologic Cycle

Evaporation and transpiration are important components of the water cycle, and while they are the same process they arise from different sources. In this video lesson you will learn about these two parts of the cycle and how they contribute to the overall movement of water on Earth.

Runoff & Infiltration: Definition & Process

5. Runoff & Infiltration: Definition & Process

When water falls to the ground as precipitation, it can either fill the spaces in the soil below ground or run across the surface. In this video lesson, you will learn about the processes of infiltration and runoff, and how they are an important part of the water cycle on Earth.

Water Potential: Definition, Equation & Measurement

6. Water Potential: Definition, Equation & Measurement

This lesson defines water potential, gives everyday examples of water potential in action, and explains how gravity, pressure, and dissolved materials affect water potential.
