Are Clouds Flat On The Bottom ?

A cloud is a mass of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of a planetary body. They are also known as aerosols. Clouds in Earth’s atmosphere are studied in the cloud physics branch of meteorology.

The clouds form when the atmospheric water vapor condenses into minute liquid water droplets (called cloud droplets) and freezes onto dust, ice or other solid particles in the air. The water collects and forms a visible mass, which can take many different shapes and sizes depending on their altitude, formation mechanism and environmental conditions.

Clouds are made of gases that are suspended by air currents. These gases are made up of molecules with more or fewer electrons than protons, creating an electric charge that allows them to bond together. In this case, water vapor becomes negatively charged while oxygen molecules become positively charged due to their extra electrons. This is called ionization and makes it possible for molecules to stick together by attraction rather than repulsion (as they would be repelled from each other if they were both neutral).

Clouds form when warm air rises up through cooler air causing condensation and evaporation; this process repeats itself until enough moisture has collected.
