How to measure the weight of a cloud
- How dense the cloud is = 1/2 gram per cubic meter
- How big the cloud is = a kilometer long and a kilometer tall.
- Do the math with the density and volume to determine the total water content of the cloud. In this case, it’s 500,000,000 grams of water, or 1.1 million pounds. Volume= Mass / Density
- How does a several-hundred-ton cloud stay afloat ? It’s distributed among trillions of tiny water droplets spread out over a really big space. Some of these droplets are so small that you would need a million of them to make one raindrop, and gravity’s effect on them is pretty negligible.
El Azizia, Libya
- Libya is the hottest country in the world with extreme hot temperature throughout the year. Libya is a country with a small population which is located in the Northern Africa. The highest temperature ever recorded was in Libya of 136.04°F (57.8°C). Most part of country consists of Libyan Desert which is dry and hot.
- Satellites can get a reading on these hard-to-reach, harsh places because they can scan every piece of the Earth’s surface. The satellites take what is called “land skin temperature,” which tells the amount of heating of a certain parcel of ground from the sun, the atmosphere and other heat sources.

Clouds form when the invisible water vapor 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 vapor. There are also tiny particles floating around in the air – such as salt and dust – these are called aerosols.
Electrical Discharge of Electrons
Lightning is the result of an electrical discharge that occurs between the negatively charged cloud and the positively charged earth’s surface.
