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

Water on Earth moves from place to place thanks to different processes that take place in the water cycle. Learn how water moves around the Earth in the water cycle, see how water transforms from one state to another through the evaporation, condensation, and precipitation processes, and check other parts of the water cycle.

The Distribution of Water on Earth

2. The Distribution of Water on Earth

Water covers a good amount of the surface of the Earth, and allows for the existence of life on our planet. It moves and changes forms through the water cycle, affecting weather, geographical features, temperatures, and water supplies. Investigate how water is distributed on Earth, in forms such as soil moisture and surface water.

What is Solar Power? - Uses, Advantages & Disadvantages

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

Solar power is the energy harnessed from the heat and light of the Sun that is converted to electricity. Learn about the definition of solar power, discover the two ways to harness solar power, and explore the advantages and disadvantages of solar power as an energy source.

How Evaporation & Transpiration Contribute to the Hydrologic Cycle

4. How Evaporation & Transpiration Contribute to the Hydrologic Cycle

The water cycle, also called the hydrologic cycle, is one of the most essential cycles on earth. Understand the process of evaporation from earth's surface, how transpiration comes from plants, and how evaporation and transpiration impact the hydrologic cycle as a whole.

Runoff & Infiltration: Definition & Process

5. Runoff & Infiltration: Definition & Process

When rain falls, it becomes either runoff, which means it is unable to soak into the ground, or infiltration, which happens when the soil can absorb the amount of rain that falls. Learn more about the definitions of runoff and infiltration processes and discover the effects of runoff on the environment.

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.
