Clouds

A cloud is a visible body of very fine water droplets or ice particles suspended in the atmosphere at altitudes up to several miles above sea level. They are generally produced by the condensation of water vapor. Other clouds, less commonly seen, are composed of smokes or dusts.

What must be done to oxygen and hydrogen to change them to liquids?

User Avatar
If you mean the individual gases you will need to apply pressure and or reduce the temperature to liquefy the gases. If you mean by forming a compound react them together. The end product is water which is liquid at room temperature and pressure.

What is the temperature on table mountain?

User Avatar
It is not a very high mountain and thus it has the same temperature as the ground temperature in the city of Cape Town which is on average between 11 and 22 degrees Celsius.

What happens to substance during changes between liquid and gas?

User Avatar
The particles of the substance gain kinetic energy as they absorb heat energy. Eventually there is enough kinetic energy for the particles to escape the liquid phase, forming the gas phase.

How much do clouds weigh?

User Avatar
To calculate the weight of a cloud, you first have to figure out how dense it is. The average density of a cumulus cloud is around half a gram of water per cubic meter. Second, you need to determine how big the cloud is, presumably by measuring its shadow while the sun is above it. A typical cloud is about a kilometer across and roughly cube shaped, meaning it has a volume of one billion cubic meters. Using this formula, scientists have determined that the average cumulus cloud weighs around 1.1 million pounds.

What is a lenticular cloud?

User Avatar
Those are the clouds that look like flying saucers. I love them a lot. They’re usually formed in mountainous environments—the relatively moist air from lower in the atmosphere flows up the mountain and cools down significantly, making it condense into a cloud in that iconic saucer shape. These clouds are somewhat elusive because they’re typically short-lived and localized. As the air moves down the other side of the mountain and sinks lower in the atmosphere, it “dries out,” and the cloud disappears. So now if you see one, you’ll know what it is, but you can still pretend it’s a spaceship. I sure will.

Can hard water be used for farming?

User Avatar
No hard water is harmful for crops so it cannot be used in farming.
Asked by Trent Rodriguez in Meteorology and Weather, Clouds

Is it possible to modify the weather?

User Avatar
It’s hard to say. While we can’t change daily temperatures, there’s some evidence that we can modify precipitation with a method called cloud seeding. The United States uses cloud seeding to alleviate droughts, induce snowfall near ski resorts, and even reduce hailstone size and fog. A crash course on cloud seeding: Usually by plane, but occasionally by other means like chimneys or even cannons, certain chemical compounds are introduced into clouds. The hope is that these compounds—the most popular being silver iodide—turn water droplets into ice crystals, making them heavy enough to fall from the clouds. In the cold, they’ll be snowflakes; in warmer temperatures, they’ll melt into raindrops. Further, we seed fog with dry ice to increase visibility at airports; we seed potential hail-producing clouds to create more individual ice nuclei, lessening hailstones’ potential for growth. All this said, there’s some disagreement about whether cloud seeding even works. Some studies say it doesn’t affect precipitation; others, using ground-based radars to examine particles within clouds, say they do.

Asked in Clouds

Is there a major difference between Asics nimbus 12 and Kayano 14?

User Avatar
the major diffeernce between a new pair of running shoes, narrowing down the brand was the easy bit. I have run in Brooks and New Balance before but hand down the best fitting make of shoes that I have ever worn has been the Asics Gel Cumulus line that I have been wearing for the past three years. The fact that I wanted large amounts of cushioning in my shoe to try and keep the shin splints at bay effectively narrowed it down to two pairs of shoes; The Asics Gel Nimbus 12s (Guide Price 105) and the Asics Gel Cumulus 12s (Guide Price 85).

How expensive is it to rent a fog machine in Tampa, Florida for Halloween?

User Avatar
Fog machines are not expensive at all. In fact it would probably be just as cheap to buy one from a party store as it would be to rent one. If you want to rent or own one they start as low as $29 depending on how big of one that you need.
