LOL..he what about my cotton candy theory , you mean that I have been lied too? Well all these years and I have wanted to sit amonst my cotton candy clouds and sing silly songs and bounce across the sky from one cloud to the next seeing ig I could find just the right place to stop and rest my weary head!!! LOL
On the point of water rising up from the sea to form clouds... the white colour of clouds is due to the fact that the light shining through them gets refracted (undergoes a change of direction due to passing from one material into another, water into air and vice-versa) many times and so whereas when there are no clouds the sky appears blue and the sun yellow the colours are all mixed up to make white (see weblink below):http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/sky_blue.html [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]Darker clouds are due to a substantial part of the light being stopped on its way through (and reflected back out into space/converted into infrared, which we can't see). The salt stays in the sea. Period. For a whole range of reasons I won't go into here because this post is already too long.
why is snow, steam and clouds all white? I think its because they all have salt in them can you give me an answer? dark clouds dont count as their dark coz light cant get through them.
OK time for the contraversial post. Salt isn't particularly white! Big pure crystals of salt get used in infra red spectroscopy because they are transparent to IR radiation (across quite a large range). If you look at one of these crystals it looks prettty much like a piece of glass. or, indeed, like a piece of (bubble free) ice.
well water shines if you look at it from an angle. but the light is absorbed as it hits and heats up the water(evaporation). so maybe it shines because the salt in it bounces the light off it. and from an angle it does look white. Right if you evaporate salt water and catch the steam and let it condense back into water and then test it for salt. does it still have some salt in it. If it does then I could be right. Better still why not catch rain water and see if there is any salt there. maybe just a small amount. I think there will be, would someone please go and test some rain water, for me! I dont have the equipment.
