Use appropriate chemical principles to explain why water droplets form on the outside of a beaker containing an ice bath.

I was thinking:

The ice bath causes the beaker temperature to decreases which in turn, cause the surrounding gas temperature to decrease. As the gas temperature decreases, the water in the air comes out of vapor and condensates on the surface of the glass.

Is there anything else I need to mention? Reword?

  1. I might use the words "air and water vapor" in place of gas. But as is looks ok to me.
