How do Snowflakes Get Their Shape?
Did you know that all snowflakes form into six sides?
All snowflakes are categorized. They can be caterorized in six main type of snowflakes. They are: plate (flat), column, stars, dendrite, lacy, needle, and capped column. When it is extremely cold, the snow has a pretty design. It is usually a simple design, like needle or rod shaped. When it is near 0 degrees Celsius, snowflakes form much larger and a lot more complex design. There are 35 main snowflakes, which you would recognize just by looking at them closley.
Did you know that about one million snowflakes fall each second?
Did you know that the average snowflake falls at a speed of 3.1 miles per hour?
How do snowflakes get their shapes?
The shape of snowflakes is influenced by the temperature and humidity. Snowflakes form in the atmosphere when the cold water droplets freeze on dust partcles on the ground. Depending on the temperature and humidity of the air in the sky, the ice crystals will grow into all different shapes and sizes and form into a snowflake.
A snowflake begins to form when an extremely cold water droplet freezes onto any dust particle in the sky. This then creates an ice crystal. As the ice crystal starts to fall to the ground, water vapor freezes onto the primary crystal, building building brand new crystals, which is the six arms of a snowflake.
Snowflakes get their shape depending on the temperature and humidity in the air. The resulting ice crystals will grow into a bunch of different shapes.
Did you know that snowflakes are made of crystals of ice that form from bits of dirt in the air?
