Why is it that you can see clouds but not see water vapour in the air?

the clouds are grouped so if you were to travel inside one you would be soaked if clouds are grouped together some can weigh a million pounds hope this helps

Why can you see your breath on cold days?
The air that you exhale contains water vapour. When you exhale during a cold day, the relative humidity increases. Relative humidity is actually the percentage of the amount of water vapour in the air.(the maximum amount of water vapour that the air can hold at that temperature) The colder the air, the less water vapour it can carry. When exhaled, air mixes with cold air, the temperature of the exhaled air drops, but there is more water vapour. When the air becomes saturated, (relative humidity is 100%), the extra water vapour will condense, allowing you to see your breathe on cold days.

What are clouds formed by?
Clouds are formed when water vapour in the air is cooled and condenses as part of watercycle.clouds consist of billions of tiny water droplets (and even ice crystals) floating in the sky and appear in variety of shapes and sizes depending on how and where they are formed.however,there are three main types of clouds. Water evaporates from lakes, rivers and oceans as well as forests. The water vapour rises into the sky. The temperature is lower as height increases and the water molecules start to condense into tiny droplets. We see these droplets as fog when they are close to the Earth but as clouds when they are above us in a layer of cold air. As more and more water vapour condenses the clouds lose their white colour and become darker until eventually the water droplets are big enough to fall back to the Earth without evaporating.

When water evaporates into air what can you see in the sky?
Asked in Science
What is the state of mater of water vapor?
Water vapour is not a gas. We can not see gas. Once we see the water vapour as droplets in the air then it is small liquid droplets of water. The steam that we see above the kettle is again condensed droplets of water that have lost the energy to maintain their gaseous existence. Close to the spout of the kettle we cannot see steam because that is where there is the gas molecules of water. If you can see it then it is a liquid. Humidity in the air is a gas.

Why does the shower produce more steam than a bath?
In a bath there is less hot water vapour condensing into particles for you to see. Steam is made up of water vapour that you can't see. More fog is produced from a shower because cold air surrounding the hot water from the shower causes water vapour to change into small water droplets called fog not steam.

How is a cloud made?
What are clouds? Clouds are made up of millions of tiny droplets of water and ice, or just water vapor, depending upon the temperature. Each of these droplets of water is smaller than a grain of flour, and they are so light that they can float on air. When pilots in airplanes fly through clouds they can see nothing but clouds. It's like being inside a thick fog or a steamy room. How are clouds made? There are 3 conditions that are necessary for cloud formation: lifting (evaporation), cooling and condensation. We can prove that dry air absorbs water by evaporation. [link proof] Therefore it makes sense to say that the air around us contains water vapour (water vapour is a gas). When this air rises it gets cooler and the water vapour condenses (it turns into tiny drops of water) to form clouds. Did you realise that condensation is the reverse of evaporation? But what makes the air rise? Convection. Think about the saying that 'hot air rises'. When the sun's rays heat the earth this also heats the air just above the ground and this hot air rises. Sometimes cold, heavy air pushes its way under warm air and forces it to rise. Answer 2: Clouds are a visible mass of particulars usually water or ice. Water vapor condenses and dorms clouds. Clouds release moisture by precipitation, raindrops and snowflakes. The atmosphere is full of extremely small particles-such as smoke, dust and sea salt. As a parcel of air cools, water vapor condenses on these tiny nuclei. Minute water droplets then become visible in the form of clouds. This water does not immediately fall to the earth. Each individual cloud droplet is is so small and light it can float in the air currents. Clouds hang poised overhead, a wonderful work of the Creator's consummate skill. (Job 37:16) It's amazing to realize that the small, fluffy cloud floating in the air above may well contain from 100 to 1,000 tons of moisture. Many clouds never do produce rain. Refer to 2/8/2004 Awake magazine on Jehovah's Witnesses official website, very interesting article.
