Answer to Question #200703 in General Chemistry for Andrei

Question #200703

 Showers, also known as rain showers, have a shorter duration than rain. They tend 

to be quick and come in bursts. It is a common observation that when the sun comes 

out immediately after a rain shower, the puddles formed from the rain dries up faster 

than if it remains cloudy. Explain, on the molecular level, as to why this occurs.

Expert's answer

Evaporation creates water vapor, a gas that rises into the air.If water loses enough heat energy (gets colder), it will freeze and turn into ice, the solid form of water. When water vapor in the atmosphere cools down, it will condense and change back into liquid water, forming clouds.
