Water is everywhere around us, but how much do we really know about it? On this edition of FunScience, hosts Adrian Hopkins and Haleigh Hunt seek to understand the mechanisms behind water, clouds, and weather. Why do we experience different kinds of weather? Where does water come from? How is our drinking water different from ocean water? To answer these questions, Jared Hottenstein does a series of experiments to explain the characteristics of water and how it impacts our daily lives. Plus, Jared demonstrates how clouds are formed and how we can measure humidity.
