Clouds form when the invisible water vapour in the air condenses into visible water droplets or ice crystals. There is water around us all the time in the form of tiny gas particles, also known as water vapour. There are also tiny particles floating around in the air - such as salt and dust - these are called aerosols.Jul 12, 2017
Clouds may be classified by form and by height. Luke Howard (1772 - 1864), a British pharmacist was the first to describe cloud forms using Latin terms such as cirrus, cumulus or stratus. The division of clouds into ten basic cloud forms, or cloud genera is based on his publications.
Fog is the same as a cloud, only low enough to reach the ground. It feels damp, since they are both merely water vapor. ... You would discover it to be damp and if the wind isn't blowing too hard, some of it (water droplets) may stick to your hand.
Well, as you might already know, clouds are actually made up of water vapour. ... For normal clouds such as cirrus or altocumulus, the droplets of the clouds have a very low mass and thus won't stick to you. But for a raining cloud like cumulonimbus or cumulus, the droplets will be much larger and thus you will get wet.
