  1. The sun is the main source. The gravitational pull of the earth, the topography of the earth’s surface, and the particle contents floating in the atmosphere are minor sources.

  2. The sun is the primary source for the water cycle. Heat from the sun affects a number of things.
    First, heat creates water vapor, which forms clouds, which then rain, and the cycle starts all over again. The sun also heats ocean water, which is where we get our jet streams and weather. Without the jet streams, we wouldn’t get much weather. So the jet streams move the clouds that rain on us to different areas.
    So, to review – sun heats water, water turns to vapor, vapor form clouds. Sun heats ocean, creating jet streams and weather patterns. Jet streams move clouds to different areas of our planet, whereupon it rains. Water is left on the ground, which is heated by the sun, becomes water vapor….and the cycle continues.

  3. The main source of energy for the water cycle is the sun.
    Sunlight releases photons that then collide and excite water molecules.
    This excitement is referred to as a transformation to heat energy.
    The heat energy causes the water to rise into the atmosphere to form clouds(evaporation).
    From there, it just falls back down when it condenses and the cycle is repeated.
