Condensation of water is when water turns from gas to a liquid or crystal shape. Any gas can condensate, usually at a low temperatures or high pressure. However, condensation can technically happen at any temperature, so long as the pressure of the condensing gas is more than the pressure of the liquid state of that gas (both at the same temperature).
Process in nature [change]
Condensation is vital in nature and is always the same as temperature and vapour pressure in nature. This means that if there is a lot of condensation, the temperature goes up. Alternatively, if there is hardly any condensation, there will be a temperature loss.
Process in industry [change]
However, since there is a temperature gain when a lot of condensation happens, the heat needs to be "removed", which can be expensive.and
