Evaluating one way of how clouds can form. To understand this method it’s important to understand a few terms. The first one is Cloud Condensation Nuclei. The CCN can consist of anything from dust, dirt, salt anything that is floating in the air. The second thing is moisture. There must be moisture present in the atmosphere to condense on the CCN to form a droplet. Next step to the process is what is known as collision and coalescence. This is the process of many CCN’s running...
