Water Vapor is called aqueous vapor, moisture. Water substance in vapor form; one of the most important of all constituents of the atmosphere.

Water vapor can be produced from the evaporation or boiling of liquid water or from the sublimation of ice.

Under typical atmospheric conditions, water vapor is continuously generated by evaporation and removed by condensation.

It is lighter than air and triggers convection currents that can lead to clouds.
