Warm water evaporates off the surface faster than cool water, assuming the same temperature of the air mass aloft.

The cold of the icebergs cause clouds to condense closer to the surface of the ice & water.

What happen to water in process of condensation?

The changing of gaseous water (H2O vapor) into liquid water refers to two named processes. The first is a phase change from condensation, and the other is exothermic through the release of heat.

What creates snow?

God crying when it's cold outside. Clouds. You see, the water EVAPORATES and makes clouds. Then, the water falls out of the clouds. It freezes on it's way down, and that's how you make snow!!!!

When combined does the different types of clouds cause a cold front?

Not always. Although many cumulnimbus clouds are associated with cold fronts, some form along dry lines or, lest often, warm fronts. Some form without any sort of front or organized weather system.

Why metal turns cold when put in cold water?

cause you put it in cold water... so it makes it cold.

How does altitude affect clouds?

Altitude affects the composition of clouds because the troposphere is very cold, so the clouds up higher are made of ice crystals. The clouds in the lower sections are made of water droplets or a mixture of water droplets and ice crystals.

If clouds become so cold that the water falls as ice this is called?

Frozen water droplets are known as hail.

What is a sentence that uses the word condensation?

The glass of cold water has condensation forming on the outside of it.

How does a cold front form and what effect does a cold front have on weather?

A cold front forms when colder air advances toward warm air. The cold air wedges under the warm air like a plow. As the war air is lifted, it cools and water vapor condenses, forming clouds. When the temperature difference between the cold and warm air is large, thunderstorms and even tornadoes may form.

Why is there more clouds at higher altitudes?

high altitudes indicate cold temperatures so then that means that water vapor condenses at cooler temperatures and when water vapor condenses then it creates clouds
