  • Question 7
    30 seconds
    Q. Why doesn't cloud formation take place until the dew-point temperature is reached?
    answer choices
    because dew-point is the temperature at which water vapor condenses into water droplets
    cloud formation can take place at any temperature, and does not depend on the dew-point temerature
    because water sublimates at the dew-point temperature
    the dew-point temperature only applies on Earth's surface, not in the atmosphere
