Why Is It Colder at the Top of a Mountain Than It Is at Sea Level?
High-altitude locations are usually much colder than areas closer to sea level. This is due to the low air pressure. Air expands as it rises, and the fewer gas molecules—including nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide—have fewer chances to bump into each other.
Earth’s gravity pulls air as close to the surface as possible. … As altitude increases, the amount of gas molecules in the air decreases—the air becomes less dense than air nearer to sea level. This is what meteorologists and mountaineers mean by “thin air.” Thin air exerts less pressure than air at a lower altitude.
when warm air rises, it cools off. … Above a certain level, the atmosphere loses heat to space faster than is can be warmed either directly (by sunlight) or indirectly (from the ground) so it gets colder and colder.
The human body reacts to high altitudes. Decreased air pressure means that less oxygen is available for breathing.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How zinc is extracted from its ore?
The most commonly available ore used for zinc extraction of zinc is called zinc blende (ZnS) for concentration of ore “Froth flotation” process is used, to remove gangue from sulphide ores.
Zinc is extracted from the purified zinc sulfate solution by electrowinning, which is a specialized form of electrolysis. The process works by passing an electric current through the solution in a series of cells. This causes the zinc to deposit on the cathodes (aluminium sheets) and oxygen to form at the anodes

🧬 HEALTH CARE: HOME REMEDIES🩺
( Note : These home tips followed in villages/ancient traditions, it is up to you to use it or not🙏🏻)
Benefits of Bitter Melon (Bitter Gourd) Kareela Tea.
You can easily make bitter gourd or bitter melon tea at home.
All you need for the herbal concoction is some dried or fresh slices of bitter gourd, some water and optionally, any natural sweetener like honey or agave syrup.
The tea may also be made from dried leaves of bitter gourd, but you may use the gourd itself as it’s more easily available.
All you need to do to make this tea is bring the water to a boil in a pot and add the dried or dehydrated karela slices to it.
Let the water boil for 10 minutes on medium heat so that all the nutrients of the bitter gourd are seeped into it.
Remove the water from flame and let the slices steep in it for some more time. Filter the contents of the pot out into a teapot or individual cups.
Add some honey or other sweetener to it, to give the tea some taste and voila! However, it’s best to avoid the sweeteners, if the tea is being consumed primarily to regulate blood sugar levels.
- Can Help Reduce Blood Sugar.
- Having Cancer-Fighting Properties.
- Could Decrease Cholesterol Levels.
- May Aid Weight Loss.
