A mass of ice crystals or water drops suspended in the atmosphere is known as a cloud. It is formed when the water condenses in the sky. The sky always possesses some amount of water vapours in it but it is invisible to us. Clouds are formed when an area of air becomes cooler until the water vapour there condenses to liquid form. At this point, the air is said to be saturated with water vapours.
The main objective of this experiment is to focus on the formation of clouds by making use of a few household materials.
Now one could witness the cloud formation. Once the cloud is filled with water it would start to rain.
Clouds are nothing but masses of condensed water vapours and they show visible signs of atmospheric processes at work. Cloud’s regulate the energy balance of the earth by absorbing infrared radiations and scattering solar radiation. In addition to this, clouds redistribute surplus energy from the equator to the poles and return water to the oceans and landmasses.
