Topic – Part of static series under the heading – “Elements of atmosphere – Temperature, Pressure and Humidity”
6) Explain the geographical phenomena that leads to the formation of clouds?(250 words).
Key demand of the question
The question expects us to explain the mechanism of cloud formation and the role that temperature, pressure and humidity play in the formation of clouds.
Structure of the answer
Introduction – Explain that temperature, pressure, condensation nuclei and RH has a key role to play in cloud formation
Body – Explain the role that these elements play in cloud formation. Explaining through illustrations would help you to convey more in lesser words. Mention that cloud results when a block of air (called a parcel) containing water vapor has cooled below the point of saturation. Explain the process of cloud formation and how droplets combine to form even bigger clouds.
