Some examples of condensation include the water that gathers on a bathroom mirror after a hot shower and the water that collects on grass as dew. Condensation is the process where gas molecules slow down and come together to form a liquid.

Condensation commonly occurs when a water vapor is cooled off or compressed to its saturation limit. This is also when the molecular density of the vapor reaches it maximum threshold. Some compressing equipment that is used to collect condensation is referred to as a condenser. A condenser is basically a heat-exchange unit. A refrigerator features a heat-exchange unit to remove heat from the interior of the unit.
