But all drops have a terminal velocity. In a wind tunnel, air can be directed upward until it keeps raindrops in place. The air will move by the drop at the same speed that the drop would fall through the air at its terminal velocity. You have experienced something similar when you ride a bike. Riding your bike at 19 kph (12 mph) through still air provides the same movement of air against your face as does a 19-kph (12-mph) wind when you stand still. Artists often draw tear-shaped raindrops, but what is the actual shape of a raindrop?

Near the equator, the troposphere is about 18 km (11 mi) tall. Near the North and South Poles, it is only about 6 km (4 mi) tall. The troposphere stretches higher in the summer. Above the troposphere is the stratosphere, where the temperature rises with altitude to a maximum of about -5ºC (23ºF). Most of Earth’s ozone is found in the stratosphere. Although there is very little of this gas in the atmosphere, it plays a very important role. It absorbs much of the ultraviolet light in sunlight. ) The stratosphere reaches to about 50 km (30 mi) from the ground.

Watch how the air outside the can, unopposed now by air that is normally inside, pushes inward on all sides of the can. Were you amazed by the strength of air? 9 How Far Away Is the Storm? Materials: stopwatch, or clock or watch with second hand stormy weather You may know that thunder is caused by the expansion of air heated by a lightning stroke. But the speed of sound (331 meters per second or 1/5 mile per second) is negligible compared with the speed of light (300,000 kilometers per second or 186,000 miles per second).
