Quote from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hail
Quote
Hail is a form of solid precipitation. It consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, each of which is referred to as a hailstone. hailstones – on Earth – consist mostly of water ice and measure between 5 and 200 millimetres (0.20 and 7.9 in) in diameter. Hail is possible within most thunderstorms as it is produced by cumulonimbi (thunderclouds),[2] and within 2 nautical miles (3.7 km) of the parent storm. Hail formation requires environments of strong, upward motion of air with the parent thunderstorm (similar to tornadoes) and lowered heights of the freezing level.

The following simulation try to simulate the formulation of Hail. Enjoy!

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
