    I think I've already made myself clear.

    Please you, or others, express that what they fail to understand.

    CO2 gas has a density of 1.225kg/m^3.
    Water has a density of 997kg/m^3.
    So, water is denser by a factor of about 800.

    Frankly, I too am having trouble understanding exactly what you're asking.

    Perhaps your question is how can liquid water hold a gas that is 800 times less dense?

    Because gases dissolve in solutions. After all, water has dissolved O2 in it.

    But again, we'll have to wait for you to clarify.

    Gas doesn't fall to the ground.

    I don't know? No one can understand you and as I recall, in the past you have been known to drink and post.

    I ask for help in understanding something, I don't, and all I get is persecution.

    Just consider it an honor to be picked on. When no one understands your post, it's bound to happen so just enjoy it.

    I am not sure what you are asking. A CO2 molecule is heavier than a H2O molecule. Does that help?

    Maybe I'm the retard, because I haven't the slightest idea of what the question even is.

    I am having what feels like an aneurysm right now and having difficulty empathizing and parsing into words what you are trying to say.

    Help us help you.

    You're not getting picked on because you're asking for help; you're feeling our frustration because you're not writing coherent questions we can answer. Make the effort, and you'll find other people will too.


    See, this is a chance where you could help yourself. Hoe does this follow from anything posted previously? Did someone say gas could fall to the ground, and you disagree? We're not telepathic.

    Regardless of why you're bringing this up, it's not true.

    Google "pouring CO2 over candle"









    There's an even better demonstration where they put a bunch of candles in a fish tank that's only half full of CO2. The CO2 sits on the bottom. Candles near the top of the tank stay lit, whereas candles on the bottom are snuffed out.

    How does temperature affect density of molecules ?

    :EDIT:

    If you watch water boil, it makes vapor; lighter then fucking air!

    Cooler temperatures will result in a greater density...slowing the movement down and allows a closer packing of the molecules.

    Cold water is denser. Hot air is less dense.

    Well that's the same with H2O now is it?

    As it goes to a solid it becomes less dense than liquid.

    How does it compare to compare to CO2 gas?

    :EDIT:

    Do ice cubes float in your drink or not?

    You already know that ice cubes float in your drink. Water is the only thing that is less dense as a solid. Most things are more dense as a solid.

    What are you really asking? Your questions are all over the place. I read your link to the other site but I can't tell what your question or problem really is with global climate change data.

    CO2 as a gas is heavier than air. It's not heavier than water. I'm not sure if that is even what you are trying to picture because you've given us no clues other than to blurt out a word or two every now and then.

    Are you upset because you don't understand something and you think you do understand it? Why is this like pulling teeth?

    Well, gravity is not pulling CO2 down from the atmosphere.

    In general that is true. As water vapor (water in the gas phase) cools it becomes more dense. As water cools it becomes more dense EXCEPT when water liquid water is very close to 0C at which point it becomes less dense. This is very unusual compared to most materials. When ice is cooled it also becomes more dense.
    That is correct, water has the fairly unusual. There are other materials that are less dense in the solid phase but not many.
    Solid CO2 is more dense than liquid CO2.
    They sink. Dry ice (solid CO2) would sink in a glass of liquid CO2.

    Here's the million dollar question: why is H2O less dense as a solid than liquid and why is CO2 more dense as a solid than liquid?

    :EDIT:

    And don't, please, say anything about atmospheric pressure.
