They float because they are made of water and ice particles. All together, it's really heavy, more than an elephant. However, it's spread out over a really large area, so it's like an elephant cell. each particle is a micron, .00001 of an inch. a little draft is enough to keep that up, so they stay up because there are a lot of little drafts way up in the sky. It's a good question, and here's why. Clouds are made of water droplets and ice crystals. Together, these droplets and crystals weigh many tons. So if the typical cloud actually weighs as much as an elephant, why doesn't it plummet to the ground? Because unlike an elephant, a cloud's weight is spread out over a very large area. Plus, the cloud's droplets and crystals are very small--about one micron, or one-hundred-thousandth of an inch across. A cloud's individual particles are so small, in fact, that warm air rising from the earth's surface is able to keep them floating in the air. It's similar to how dust motes swirl in a shaft of sunlight. Although the bits of dust are affected by gravity, even the gentlest air currents are enough to keep them dancing around in the air. But clouds don't stay up in the air forever, of course. When the warm air keeping clouds afloat cools, its water vapor condenses and adds to the cloud's droplets. At a certain point the droplets become heavy enough to overwhelm the force of the rising air, and all that water falls to the ground. That's what we call rain!
Because I told them to
no clouds are are a gas which is why they can float around freely in the sky.
because peoples feet smell
the heavenly sky gods
Gaseous water is lighter than air. Clouds are composed (mainly) of gaseous water.
The pink clouds let you float around.
Clouds are formed from minute water droplets, which are light enough not to be pulled to earth by gravity. Rain is formed when droplets combine to make a drop too heavy to 'float'.
Clouds never really "go" anywhere, though, clouds are always floating which, eventually, causes them to float away. There are still clouds in the sky when it gets dark but they are harder to see.
Clouds float because, maybe they weigh a lot, but their weight spreads and the water droplets and ice crystals are so tiny that they can be held in the air by the hot air of the earth and when its cold they drop.
