Moisture collected from the atmosphere by the action of cold. During the day, the powerful heat of the sun causes to arise from the earth and water a moist vapor, which, after the sun sinks below the horizon, is condensed by the cold, and falls in the form of dew. Dew is more copious in the Spring and Autumn than at any other season. It is also more common in warm countries than in cold ones because of the sudden changes of temperature. Egypt abounds in dew all summer long; for the air is too hot to condense the vapors in the day-time and the dew never gathers into clouds and form rain.
According to the passage above, dew is most likely
- large drops of rain falling from the sky.
- water vapor that condenses in the clouds.
- small droplets that form when water vapor condenses.
- the water that makes up the lakes and puddles on earth.
