What would happen if there was no water vapor in the atmosphere?
Asked in Climatology and Climate Changes
What would happen if the air in the upper atmosphere were warmer than the water vapor that was continued in the air?
If the air in the in the upper atmosphere were warmer than the water vapor that was continued in the air would make the earth colder in the air. ...
What would happen if carbon dioxide and methane and water vapor were not in the atmosphere?
The Earths surface would be much colder than it is.
Asked in Science
What would happen if the atmosphere could no longer hold water vapor?
It would rain If the atmosphere could no longer hold any water at all it would mean the end of life outside of the oceans. ...

What would happen to the water cycle if the sun heated the atmosphere evenly?
If the sun heated the atmosphere evenly, the water vapor in the air wouldn't move from 1 place to another. ...

What if the world would ran out of water?
If that happened, we would all die. However, that essentially can't happen. In order to actually get rid of water, you'd have to shoot it into space. Boiling it just adds it to the atmosphere as water vapor, and it eventually precipitates back out as rain. ...
Asked in Earth Sciences, Water Cycle
What would happen to the water cycle if there were no heat on Earth?
All water on earth would freeze. Consequently, there would be no water or water vapor to make the water cycle. ...
Asked in Planet Jupiter
Is there any existing evidence of water on Jupiter?
There is evidence of some water vapor or water ices in Jupiter's atmosphere, but the amounts would be described as "scant". ...

If all the water vapor in the atmosphere were to condense and fall to the ground the globe would be covered with about how much water?
we would flood since we have a hog water supply we would flood since we have a hog water supply ...
Where is the least of the water vapor in the atmosphere found?
The least would be in cold, dry areas. Cold air can hold much less moisture than warm air. Therefore, polar regions would have the least amount of water vapor. ...

If the air is saturated with water vapor what must happen to the temperature of the air to allow it to hold more water vapor?
it would have to get colder for the water molucules to shrink and more to come in and it woluld allow more space ...

How would you accurately describe a water cycle?
If you leave a glass of water on a sunny windowsill, the water will disappear, do you want to know how. The water evaporates. Evaporation takes place when liquid water changes into water vapor, which is a gas, and enters the atmosphere. Water evaporates from the surface of lakes, streams, puddles, and oceans. Water vapor enters the atmosphere from plant leaves in a process known as transpiration. ...
Asked in Meteorology and Weather
Does vapor water contribute to global increase in temperature?
Yes in theory it does. An increase in water vapor, being a (albeit weak) greenhouse gas, would enhance the greenhouse effect and warm the lower atmosphere even more, which would tend to evaporate more moisture and add more vapor to the atmosphere, etc. Some argue that increased water vapor would increase low clouds, which act more to cool the surface than warm it due to its greater ability to reflect incoming solar radiation. It's likely though that increased water vapor would help...

What state of matter would water be in at 32 degrees Celsius?
At 1 atmosphere pressure, and 32Â°C, water would be a liquid, but water vapor (gas) would most likely present as well (that's what humidity is). ...
Asked in Global Warming, Air Pollution
What is the most important greenhouse gas?
This depends on what you mean by important. For instance chlorinated fluorocarbons at a given concentration have an effect thousands of times that of the same concentration of Carbon dioxide. Fortunately their concentration is very low. On the other hand water vapor has a lower effect than an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide but its concentration is very high (not surprising since two thirds of the earth's surface is water) so with the current composition of the earth's atmosphere water vapor has the...
Asked in Science
Whats it called when liquid water changes to water vapor?
When liquid water changes into water vapor it is called evaporation. Condensation would be the opposite from water vapor to liquid water. ...

What would happen if earth had high levels of water vapor?
there would be alot of rain so therefore alot of living things would live on our earth ...
Asked in Chemistry, Clouds
What will happen if a cold spoon is held above a kettle of boiling water?
some water vapor released from boiling would condense on the cold spoon as water droplets. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Temperature
What would happen to a sample of water at 30 degrees c if it is heated until the temperature reaches 120 degrees c?
It would heat to 100 degrees C, and then begin to boil. The water vapor would be at 100C, and would rise away. If you kept the vapor combined, it would pressurize the container. ...
