Rain is advantageous because it brings water for all living things. But rain can be
disastrous, too, because too much rain will cause floods which can wash away people,
houses and other valuable properties.
The following is how rain is formed. The air is filled with tiny particles known as
vapour. Vapour is actually the gaseous form of water. Vapour is a part of air. The air
around us is constantly moving because the air near the surface of the earth is hotter and
lighter. This is why this is air rises. The air higher up in the sky is cold and heavy, so it
sinks. The rising of hot air and the singking of cold water cause the air to move. When
the hot air rises to a certain level, the vapour presents in it, cools and changes to water.
This is known as condensation. When the water particles are too heavy for the air to
carry, the air is said to be oversatured. The water particles then fall as rain.
