How Do Clouds Float?

Clouds form when the sun creates warm, moist air by heating and evaporating water on the earth’s surface. The warm, moist air is less dense than the cold air above it, so that warm air rises2. The warm air cools as it comes into contact with the cooler air above. Cold air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air: the vapor has to condense into a liquid. This is the beginning of a cloud. the warm air pushes up on the cloud and keeps it afloat.

How do Solar Panels Work?

When photons hit a solar cell, they knock electrons loose from their atoms. If conductors are attached to the positive and negative sides of a cell, it forms an electrical circuit. When electrons flow through such a circuit, they generate electricity.

CPR : Doing CPR right away can double or even triple a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest.

If a person is not breathing, his heartbeat will stop. Do CPR (chest compressions and rescue breaths) to help circulation and get oxygen into the body. (Early use of an AED—an automated external defibrillator—if one is available, can restart a heart with an abnormal rhythm.
Keep your hand on the centre of the victims chest. Interlock fingers. Give chest compressions. Move to the patient’s head. Tilt his head and lift his chin to open the airway again. Let his mouth fall open slightly. Take a normal breath, put your mouth over the patient’s, and blow until you can see his chest rise.Remove your mouth from the patient’s and look along the chest, watching the chest fall. Repeat steps and rescue breaths.
