Why does hot air rise?
Since it's molecules are farther apart than when it's cold, it takes up more room making it lighter
it is lighter
look in google maps just type in those zip code just put 016, United states
Heat travels from where its hot, to where its not. (heat transfer) convection causes the warm air from below, to push under the cold air above and all of the heat is taken away from the bottom. Instead, it is given to the top and stays afloat.
it is lighter.
It is less dense and therefore "lighter" and is pushed up by more dense (cooler) air.
Heat is lighter and has less density than cold air making it rise above cooler air. Hot air and cold air weigh the same but hot air takes up more space.
