Summary:There are three states of matter: gas, liquid, and solid. Water in our atmosphere exists in these three states constantly. As the temperature of water vapor (a gas) decreases, it will reach the point at which it turns into a liquid (called the dew point or the point at which dew forms). This change of state from a gas to a liquid is called condensation. Using some ice and a glass, the students will chill the glass to the point where water from the atmosphere will condense on the outside of the glass. This demonstrates the change of state of water vapor to liquid.
