Hey everyone! Did you know that it rains on different worlds?

On Earth when stuff falls from the sky, what do we see? Well it varies depending on the temperature but you can rest assured that what you see and feel is water. The stuff is everywhere! It comes in different forms such as liquid and a solid. So how is rain formed? Rain happens through a process called the water cycle. Simply put, water is evaporated from sources like rivers, lakes and oceans and rises into the air. As temperatures cool, the water vapor condenses and forms a cloud! Once water is condensed into a cloud, the cloud forms water droplets which then form into water drops. Once these water drops are heavy enough most of it makes it back to the surface as rain and this is the never-ending loop of the water cycle.

In bad thunderstorms, the drops that begin falling back to the surface get blown back high in to the atmosphere into

Titan is the largest moon in the Saturn system and the second largest in the solar system, second to Jupiter 's moon Ganymede. Titan is a very complex world, in fact, scientists believe it is similar to how Earth would have looked in it 's early years. It 's atmosphere is composed of 95% nitrogen and 5% methane. Titan has methane rivers, lakes, and even oceans! In order for methane to exist in a liquid form it has to be extremely cold, on Titan it would be about minus 290 degrees F! Living on Titan would be relatively easy for humans. It is one of the least hostile places in our outer solar system. Protection from the cold and a breathing mask would be all you needed to live there. So, what would happen if you got caught in rain on Titan? No need to worry. If you happen to be exposed to the liquid methane, treating the exposure would be relatively the same as treating a natural gas exposure. Lets say you get the methane on your skin, if you rinse the area thoroughly with water, you will be

    Any form of running water: whether rapids, ground water discharge, or anything that generates waves can cause aeration. As for man-made aeration, an air pump or a hand-turned waterwheel can dissolve oxygen into the source (Kemker). The affect these factors have on the water is entirely dependent on the solubility of the water, however. The solubility decreases as the temperature increases. This high temperature limits the amount of oxygen that can be…

    In the atmosphere, evaporation occurs from the water surface of natural and artificial reservoirs, lakes etc., and snow and soil surfaces and also from the surfaces of vegetation. As such a part of the precipitation reaching the earth’s surface is lost through evaporation. The rate of evaporation is dependent on (I) the vapour pressures at the water surface and air above (II) air and water temperature, (III) wind velocity, (IV) Atmospheric Pressure, (V) quality of water and (VI) Size of water body. Dalton’s law of evaporation: - John Dalton was the first scientist to describe the process of evaporation, scientifically. An evaporation rate varies directly with difference of vapour pressure air and water.…

    Rain occurs when condensed moisture in the atmosphere falls to the ground in separate, visible drops and it provides us with another source of water and can be used to provide plants with water such as in rainforests or countryside. The hydrologic cycle allows for rain to form and pour down in different areas. Water from oceans, swamps, lakes, rivers are evaporated and turn into water vapor due to the water being heated by the sun or other means. This water vapor rises into the troposphere (where most weather phenomena occur) and cools as it ascends. When it condenses, the water vapor become water droplets that form clouds.…

    The atmosphere on Jupiter is very thick and the whole planet is mostly made of gas (Exploring Life’s Mysteries). The biggest factor that keeps intelligent life from being able to live on Jupiter is how the planet transfers heat. Jupiter absorbs heat from the sun then outputs twice as much. Jupiter’s temperature ranges from negative 190 Fahrenheit to forty degrees Fahrenheit (Exploring Life’s Mysteries). Jupiter has barely any gravity compared to Earth, which would be a big change if intelligent life would try to live there.…

    This incorporates the vanishing of moisture from the surface of the earth, the conveying of the moisture into more elevated amounts of the climate, the buildup of water vapor into cloud masses, and the arrival of water to the surface as precipitation. The significant points to analyze when discussing clouds are types/levels, development, and history. Clouds are accumulations of minuscule water droplets and ice crystals that buoy noticeable all around. They are comprised of a great many…

    The first phase of the water cycle is evaporation. Evaporation is the process by which particles escape from the surface of a non-boiling liquid and enter the gas state. The source of evaporation is rivers, lakes, and oceans, which cover about 75% of the earth’s surface. God’s word describes this in Jeremiah 51:16 “When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.” Since the beginning, this phenomenon had been part of God’s greater plan.…

    Venus, The First Planet

    Appearing to be a nice golden color, the pictures we see of Venus is actually showing the clouds that are filled with sulfuric acid, making its atmosphere cloudy and dense. A year on Venus last 225 Earth days and a day lasts 243 Earth days. This means that it takes longer for Venus to spin on its axis, than it does for it to orbit the Sun. Another interesting thing about Venus is that its orbit is most nearly circular than any other planet, at a speed of 108, 209, 475 kilometers. The diameter is also almost nearly circular.…

    Persson (2006) tells us that the Hadley Cell is caused by solar energy heating the equator, this causes warm moist air to rise towards the Tropopause dumping rain in terrestrial biomes such as the Tropical Rainforest. After the air has risen and lost most of its moisture it travels along the troposphere whilst being…

    Melting is a stage but only in select environments (name,date). Water in the oceans moves to the atmosphere through evaporation, when heated by UV rays. This is where liquid water is turned into vapor or gas. Once this is in the atmosphere, atmospheric circulation transports it around the word. As this water is carried over land is is released in the form of precipitation either as rain or snow (when clouds can no longer withstand the weight of the snow or rain it is released).…

    We know that for it to rain, warm air has to evaporate water from rivers, oceans, pond, trees, etc, and then it transforms that water into condensation. Soon there will be enough condensation built up that we will experience rainfall, snow, and other types of precipitation. Around the world, we are experiencing a great increase in rain. Why is this? Why is our world constantly undergoing more precipitation than we were in previous years?…
