The Water Cycle
  • Clouds and Water Vapor
what s up with water
What’s Up With Water?
  • Water is everywhere.
  • Water can be found in 3 different states, solid, liquid, and gas.
  • Water falling from the sky is called Precipitation.
  • There are four types of precipitation: rain, snow, sleet, and hail.
types of precipitation
Types of Precipitation
  • Precipitation is determined by air temperature
  • Rain- in warm air, water vapor forms rain
  • Snow- cold air causes water vapor to form snowflakes
  • Sleet- small ice pellets
  • Hail- lumps of ice
what is a cloud
What is a Cloud?
  • Clouds are formed by warm air being forced upward. ( moist air is lighter than dry air)
  • Warm air expands then cools
  • Water vapor condenses into water droplets
  • Droplets are so small they remain suspended in air and form around dust particles and other particles in the air.
  • Billions of these droplets form a cloud
types of clouds
Types of Clouds
  • Clouds are classified by shape and height
  • Shape and height vary because of temperature, pressure, and amt. of water vapor
  • Three main types- Cirrus, Stratus, and Cumulus
  • Three main heights- Cirro (high), Alto (middle), Strato (low)
