Snowflakes form when a droplet of water vapor freezes onto a dust particle or pollen grain in the sky, creating an ice crystal. As the crystal falls, more water vapor freezes onto the original crystal, creating new cryst... More »

One of the most complicated problems in math concerns the Koch snowflake, an infinitely expanding shape of equilateral triangles. Due to the way in which the shapes are drawn and laws of limits, the area of the snowflake... More » Math Arithmetic

Five kinds of snow crystals are simple prisms, stellar plates, stellar dendrites, sectored plates and rimed crystals. Snowflakes are formed when water vapor freezes in clouds then falls through cold air to the ground. Sn... More »

Snow forms when atmospheric water vapor freezes onto a pollen or dust particle, which creates an ice crystal. As it falls, more water vapor freezes onto the ice crystal to create snowflakes. More » Science Weather & Tides Snow

Snowflakes form in the atmosphere when extremely cold water droplets form frozen crystals around tiny particles of dust or pollen. When these ice crystals fall closer to the ground, water vapor freezes onto the primary c... More »

Ice crystals that fall from the sky as precipitation are called snowflakes. Snowflakes take several forms, depending on how the ice crystals fall and the temperatures of both the air and ground. More »

Snow forms when moisture freezes onto microscopic particles of pollen or dust at the atmospheric temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. More moisture freezes to the original ice crystal, forming snowflakes. If th... More » Science Weather & Tides Snow
