    The simplest way to explain the typical cloud formation is as follows:

    Water from the ground level evaporates as the Sun heats it up. This causes water vapour to become dissolved into the air, something we call humidity. Since hotter air rises, this air with heated water (from the Sun heating it up and vaporizing it into the air in the first place) begins to rise. As air rises, there is less and less air above ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution discusses how air temperature, pressure and density are related to cloud formation.
