WHY is the Rainforest so RAINY?
As water vapor rises it cools and water condenses to form clouds
The Sun’s energy is strongest near the equator, so it is very hot.
This happens on a daily basis!
Water is heated by the Sun’s energy to create water vapor
Very large clouds form very quickly because of the large amount of water vapor
The area around the equator is mostly covered by water so a large amount of water evaporates
