The reason the mirror was wet because of condensation and evaporation. When there is warm air, it holds more water vapor. Also, warm air rises and when warm, moist air rises, it is attracted because the air reached the dew point temperature and condensed on the mirror. The water vapor came from the air bubble in his shower room.

Not a bad answer...3/4....Explain with more detail what condensation, evaporation and dew point are....what are the energy transfers that take place?

The reason the mirror was wet because of condensation and evaporation.Condensation is when water vapor goes into a liquid state and evaporation is when liquid goes into a gas state. When there is warm air, it holds more water vapor. Also, warm air rises and when warm, moist air rises, it is attracted because the air reached the dew point temperature and condensed on the mirror. The water vapor came from the air bubble in his shower room. The energy transfers that take place are convection and condensation.
