Answer for the Question of the Week

A cloud’s weight is spread out over a very large area. Plus, the cloud’s droplets and ice crystals are very small–about one micron. A cloud’s individual particles are so small, in fact, that warm air rising from the earth’s surface is able to keep them floating in the air. But clouds don’t stay up in the air forever, when the warm air keeping clouds afloat cools, its water vapor condenses, and adds to the cloud’s droplets. At a certain point the droplets become heavy enough to overwhelm the force of the rising air, and all that water falls to the ground giving us the rain.

In the human body cells the content of water is higher than salt water. If we drink salt water it dehydrate our body cells which could lead us to death. But in the sea, fish use metabolic energy (ATP) to actively excrete salt through the gills and kidneys this prevents them from dehydration.

Answer for the Question of the Week

When you are in the back seat of the car you don’t get a good view of the moving environment outside. This makes your eyes believe that you are still. But the balance mechanism in your ear makes you feel that you are moving. The disagreement between what you feel and what you see is the main reason causing travelling sickness when you are in the back seat. Furthermore the more shaking in the back seat could also affect getting more travelling sickness at the back.

Ants lay down pheromones as they walk back to their nest after a meal. These scented trails signal “good eats” to other ants. Meanwhile, a different pheromone might tell wanderers to turn back, because there’s no food ahead.
