con·den·sa·tion

(kŏn′dən-sā′shən)
The change of a gas or vapor to a liquid, either by cooling or by being subjected to increased pressure. When water vapor cools in the atmosphere, for example, it condenses into tiny drops of water, which form clouds.

Condensation

 Examples: condensation of manufacturing populace, 1828; of thought and expression, 1794; of water drops.
