How are convection currents related to density?

Answer

Density is the fraction between an element's mass and the capacity of space it occupies. Less dense air rises. Warm air rises; cold air sinks shows that warm air exhibits a greater density than cold air. The temperature drops to the point that leads to the formation of circular air currents known as convection currents.
