Clouds...how much water in 'em ?
« on: 27/08/2005 22:08:33 »
Hi Wonderful Science Peeps,

I know the title to this thread is akin to how long is a piece of string...but take your bog-standard heavily laden saturated dark cloud....how much water is in it ?....perhaps it would be easier to answer how much water is in a cubic 100 meters for example !!

Please rain on my parade and extinguish my curiosity !

Thanks



Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

One website http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a980313a.html mentioned an average figure of 5 g/m^3 but also said the variation was large.
