This science game helps children practice about precipitation. Precipitation occurs when water particles fall from the atmosphere to the ground. Water particles that are too heavy to remain in the atmosphere are forced to the ground by gravity. This article is about the formation of precipitation and its various forms. We will also discuss the importance of precipitation and its different types. We will also discuss the conditions that can cause precipitation, such as temperature, humidity, or rainfall.
Different forms of precipitation
There are many types of precipitation. Precipitation is simply all liquid that falls from the skies. Snowfall, rain, hail, and other forms of precipitation are all examples. These forms of precipitation are able to animate the water cycle, which is an inexorable process. How does this process begin? Let's see what the next sections reveal.
Larger droplets can grow in size through condensation and coalescence that occurs during precipitation. Larger droplets will have a greater terminal velocity and collide with smaller ones to form one large cloud. Some of these collisions cause droplets to separate, but not all. Contrary to evaporation which produces large droplets from smaller ones, coalescence can be enhanced by the opposing electrical charges. Large droplets can be formed by strong updrafts.
Rainfall on earth is controlled by the gravity of its atmosphere. Most precipitation is water that falls to the surface, which then flows into the oceans. Some of this water also enters the valleys through the rivers. The rivers transport the water from the ground to the oceans. The water in lakes and oceans would disappear if it weren't for gravity. Gravitation is therefore essential for keeping water on earth. It is the fundamental force that pulls precipitation to the earth.
