(4 points)
1. Complete the following table based on the observations you made during the lab.
Cold water
After I had opened the bottle, condensation rose to the top of the water bottle where the air was.
Cold water plus match
With water plus the match, the smoke from the match causing condensation displaced air.
Hot water
With hot water, the steam covered the top of the bottle.
Hhot water plus match
With the match in the smoke went all the way to the bottom of the bottle to make a cloud.
(5 points)
2. Why do you think the presence of smoke contributed to cloud formation?
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.

3. What role did pressure play in the formation of the clouds?
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)
4. Based on what you have discovered, which of the following conditions would lead to the formation of clouds?
1. Moist air moves up as it encounters a mountain range.
2. High pressure is moving into an area.
3. The air over a large parking lot is warmer in the afternoon than the surrounding park is.
4. The horse latitudes are areas of sinking air.
5. Low pressure moves into your area.
5. Low pressure moves into your area.
