2. Why do you think the presence of smoke contributed to cloud formation?
Answer:
I think the presence of the smoke contributed to cloud formation since the moisture in the bottle from the water collects smoke particles which form into clouds. In the sky water molecules cling onto solid particles.

(5 points)
3. What role did pressure play in the formation of the clouds?
Answer:
Pressure played a huge role, the atmospheric air pressure pushed up the smoke where it reaches the top of the bottle collects water molecules and is pushed back down forming a cloud.

(5 points)
