The Water Cycle Water cycle refers to the way that water moves between being water vapor to liquid water and then back to the water vapor. An example of water cycle is when water evaporates from oceans and then returns to the land in form of rain The water is defined as how water moves between the ocean and the other bodies of water, the laind and the air. The sun causes water to evaporate from the ocean, lakes, and other bodies of water. The evaporated water vapor forms cloud; in the clouds.
