Jimmy is riding in his car to the office. It is snowing heavily and he can see frost forming on the windowpane. Which type of water transition is this? A. evaporation B. precipitation C. condensation D. deposition

Ashley917181:

Says it’s wrong .

lian:

oh, what was the correct answer

lian:

That was my answer too but she said it was wrong

26jnunez:

it's deposition

swinn:

I believe it would be deposition because a deposition is The production of a thin film of material onto an existing surface.

26jnunez:

26jnunez:

Deposition is the laying down of sediment carried by wind, water, or ice

XioGonz:

Both ice and snow are basically frozen water however the difference lies in their composition. Snow is a regular shaped crystal form while ice is a solidified sheet of ice. So all of this is the clue that it is condensation.

26jnunez:

so its deposition

26jnunez:

XioGonz:

deposition refers to a phase transition in which matter transitions directly from a gaseous state into a solid-state without passing through an intermediate liquid phase.

swinn:

Condensation - water moving from a vapor to a liquid state. Freezing - water moving from a liquid to a solid-state. Deposition - water moving from a vapor to a solid-state.

umm:

$$\color{#ffff00}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @XioGonz C. Condensation $$\color{#ffff00}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ Simply refrain from giving direct answers.

XioGonz:

I admit I was wrong, the answer is deposition. I did some quick research.
