Sequencing:

Arrange the steps in a sequenced manner

  1. As the air rises, it begins to cool.
  2. The water vapour condenses on dust particles present in the atmosphere to form millions of tiny droplets.
  3. This makes the air lighter and it rises in the atmosphere, taking water vapour with it.
  4. The cluster of tiny water droplets floating in air forms cloud.
  5. When the temperature of air increases, it expands.
