English translation:dew point
Explanation:
From Termium:

English:Heat (Physics)
Effects of Heat (Energy Transfer)
Compressed and Liquefied Gas (Petroleum)

dew point s CORRECT


DEF - The temperature and pressure at which a liquid begins to form out of a gas, or condense. s
CONT - ... if a constant pressure is held on a certain volume of gas but the temperature reduced, a point is reached at which droplets of liquid condense out of the gas. That point at which liquid begins to form is the dew point of the gas at that pressure. Similarly, if a constant temperature is held on a certain volume of gas but the pressure increased, again a point is reached at which liquid begins to condense out of the gas. That point at which liquid begins to form is the dew point of the gas at that temperature. s

dew point


Explanation:
Dew point = the temperature for which (water) steam contained in the air becomes saturated, i.e. the temperature at which there will be condensation. This condensation forms on recoooling, cooling down.
