10 Amazing Facts About Planet Earth

Planet Earth is an amazing place, to say the
least. And even though we’ve been living on its
surface our entire life, there are still a lot of things we don’t know about it. Many things that we do know are awe-inspiring. What’s even more interesting about some
of these is the fact that they have wide-scale implications on everything around them. But why try to be so mysterious, if we can
give you 10 such examples, right? 10. Planet Earth and a Cue Ball We all know the Earth is big, there’s no
denying it. But when it really comes down to it, we have
a hard time coming to grips with its actual dimensions. So, in order to make things more relatable,
let’s take a look at mountains. Those of us who have been fortunate enough
to see or even climb Mount Everest can attest to the fact that it’s incredibly huge and
incredibly humbling. But most people don’t even need to see any
of the tallest mountains in the world to know that mountains are big. Now, let’s take our mental image of mountains
as points of reference when we talk about the dimensions of the Earth. We know that the average diameter of the planet
is of about 7,900 miles. It’s important to note here that Earth is
not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid. This means that, because it’s spinning on
its axis, the diameter at the equator is bigger than the distance between the poles by about
27 miles. And beside these differences, the planet also
has some bumps and dents, but they’re much smaller than 27 miles. With this information in mind, if we were
to scale the planet down to the size of an average cue ball, we would come to an incredible
realization. According to the World Pool-Billiard Association
(WPA) Tournament Table and Equipment Specifications, every new ball should measure 2.25 inches
in diameter and only have imperfections that cannot exceed 0.005 inches. By making the proper calculations here, it
turns out that the biggest “imperfection” on Earth can be 17 miles and fall within WPA
standards. While Mount Everest is almost 5.5 miles tall,
and the Mariana trench is 6.8 miles deep, if they were taken together, side by side,
the sum is still below the 17 mile margin. The same thing applies to the difference in
diameter between the poles and the equator. Each half of the planet is responsible for
its 13.5 mile share out of the total 27, which again is below 17 miles. So, anyone who has ever held a brand new cue
ball in their hand and is not amazed by the fact that the Earth is even smoother than
that? Well, he or she seriously needs to revise
their sense of wonder about the world. 9. The Earth’s Crust If you liked the previous example, you’ll
like this one too. The planet’s crust is the only place in
the whole seemingly infinite universe that we call home; at least for the time being. And it’s not even the whole crust, per se,
just the surface. The deepest humans have ever managed to go
was to a depth of 7.5 miles with the Kola Superdeep Borehole in Russia. Temperatures reached well above 356 °F, so
it was only the drilling equipment and measuring apparatus that made it down there, while the
scientists stayed safely on the surface. The actual thickness of the crust, like its
temperature, varies from one place to the other. While the average thickness is of about 9.3
miles, it can reach a maximum of 55 miles under the Himalayas and just about 3.7 miles
under the oceans. Now, by knowing the planet’s diameter to
be 7,900 miles, if we were to scale it down again, but this time to the size of a basketball,
the Earth’s crust would be the thickness of a postage stamp; a postage stamp floating
on a ball of molten rock and metal. Yes, this is true. So, the next time you hear someone comparing
the planet’s crust to that of a chicken egg shell, know that information to be false. The planet’s crust is far thinner than that. If Earth was the size of an actual egg, the
crust would probably be even thinner than the thickness of human skin that peels off
after a sunburn. Yuck! And since the crust is also broken up into
pieces that we call tectonic plates, it’s now easier to understand how and why continents
move around so much. So, now that you know these two pieces of
information about the crust and the actual size of the Earth, how do you think we fare
in size here on Earth by comparison to bacteria on an actual billiard ball? 8. Earth’s “Heartbeat” With the previous two entries on this list,
would it really come as a surprise to anyone that Earth might just have an actual heartbeat? Well, yeah, it would, and this isn’t actually
true, but the planet does have something closely resembling one. Every moment of every day, Earth is going
through roughly 2,000 thunderstorms everywhere on its surface. And these thunderstorms produce roughly 50
lightning strikes every second. And in turn, each of these lightning strikes
produces a series of electromagnetic waves that are captured and then bounce between
the planet’s surface and the lower ionosphere, some 60 miles up. If the wavelength is just right, then some
of these waves combine and increase in strength, creating a repeating atmospheric “
heartbeat”, a phenomenon known in science as the Schumann resonance. This phenomenon has been known for a while
now, but in 2011 researchers came to realize that this resonance isn’t just confined
to the planet’s atmosphere, since some of the waves actually extend more than 500 miles
into space. On a somewhat similar note, a Dutch artist
by the name of Lotte Geeven, in collaboration with geoscientists from the German Research
Centre for Geosciences, have recorded the sounds made by the planet, deep inside its
crust. The recording was done in Germany, in a hole
similar to the one in Russia mentioned before. The German Continental Deep Drilling Program,
or more commonly known as the KTB borehole, goes to a depth of six miles inside the Earth’s
crust and here, scientists were able to capture the sounds made by the planet. Some have described these sounds as a “melancholic
howl” or “a bell-like alarm denoting histories in the making.” 7. The Amazing Story about Oxygen It’s no real mystery that Earth hasn’t
always looked like it does today. In fact, our planet is in constant change
even at the current moment, and for the better part of its existence, the conditions on the
surface have almost always been different than they are now. So, with this in mind, let’s talk about
oxygen and how it got here. Oxygen only became predominant in the atmosphere
roughly 2.3 billion years ago, during an incident called the Great Oxygenation Event. Before this time, oxygen levels were marginal
at best, making up just around 0.02% of all the gases in the air. But during the GOE, it reached levels of above
21%. This big rise is thanks to a tiny organism
that is still alive today – the Cyanobacteria, or more commonly known as the blue-green algae. These organisms are not algae, as their common
name might suggest, but unicellular bacteria that can manufacture their own food. They live in water, form huge colonies, and
use photosynthesis to turn the sun’s rays directly into energy. A byproduct of photosynthesis, as some of
us know, is oxygen. Over billions of years, these tiny creatures
inhabited the world’s oceans, releasing more and more oxygen as they multiplied and
spread. It’s safe to say that we owe thanks to these
Cyanobacteria for our very existence and the world we live in today. It is, however, important to note that this
new change in the planet’s chemistry did not go as smoothly as some might think. For starters, oxygen was toxic for all other
living creatures on the planet at that time and nearly drove all previous anaerobic life
into extinction. Secondly, the growing amount of oxygen in
the air reacted with the already existing methane, which was in abundance at the time,
creating CO2. And since methane is 25 to 30 times more potent
as a greenhouse gas than CO2, Earth went through a severe cold spell that lasted for 300 million
years and almost drove even the “mighty” Cyanobacteria into extinction. Lastly, the higher levels of oxygen triggered
an explosion, so to speak, in the number of minerals on the surface of the planet – minerals
that otherwise would not have existed if it weren’t for the blue-green algae. More than 2,500 of the total 4,500 minerals
now common on Earth appeared during the Great Oxygenation Event. So, the next time you think of humans as being
the only species capable of changing the planet beyond recognition and having the capacity
to drive life, including itself, into extinction… think again. 6. The Origins of Life For all the credit we can give our men and
women of science when it comes to all the discoveries they’ve made over the years,
we still have to take into account the fact that we know surprisingly little when it comes
to life and how it came into being in the first place. Up until fairly recently, we believed we knew
with a relatively high degree of certainty when life first appeared on Earth, and we
had our presumptions on how it happened. But it seems that this theory has now changed. According to a recent study, we can now move
the appearance of life back by another 300 million years, bringing it quite close to
the moment when the planet actually formed some 4.5 billion years ago. If the research is confirmed, then it would
seem that life formed 4.1 billion years ago, from a primordial disk of dust and gas surrounding
the Sun just before the Earth started forming. The researchers came to this conclusion after
observing tiny specks of graphite trapped inside zircon crystals. This graphite is usually associated with signs
of life. Another theory that can account for its existence
in the crystals is a massive meteor impact. But given the amount needed to explain these
findings, it makes the meteor theory highly unlikely, though not entirely dismissible. If proven true, however, and life is as old
as this new evidence suggests, then it would seem it’s even older than the Moon itself. “With the right ingredients, life seems
to form very quickly,” said Mark Harrison, a professor of geochemistry at UCLA and member
in this study. 5. Two Planets Become One Ever thought about how the Moon was formed? Probably because it’s visible up in the
sky almost every other night, people have grown accustomed to seeing it and don’t
give it a second thought. But the Moon’s history, and especially its
birth, are amazing and terrifying, to say the least. Back in the early days of the solar system,
and soon after our planet began to take shape, fate would place young Earth on a direct collision
course with another planet we now call Theia. Now, even though it’s hard to know for certain
if this actually happened, there are strong indications that it did. According to the calculations, this sister
planet of ours was roughly the size of Mars (or slightly smaller), and because of the
still unpredictable and chaotic nature of the solar system at the time, it was flung
in the direction of Earth. In the aftermath of the collision, two things
happened. The two planets merged to form this one we
are all standing on right now. And secondly, much of the debris that was
flung into space came together and formed the Moon. Now, as we said before, this collision theory
is not certain. But the relatively large size of the Moon
as compared to the Earth points to this hypostasis. So do the rocks brought back during the Apollo
missions, which are virtually indistinguishable from those here on Earth when it comes to
their oxygen isotopes. This theory can also explain our planet’s
unusually large core as compared to all the other rocky worlds in the solar system. 4. Shifting Poles No, this has nothing to do with any voting
or elections – it’s about the Earth’s magnetic field. Thanks in part to our planet’s larger-than-usual
molten core and its relatively fast spin on its axis, both of which may be the result
of the previously mentioned collision between Earth and Theia, our planet has a very strong
magnetic field relative to its size. In fact, only Mercury, of all the other rocky
planets, has a magnetic field, but it’s far weaker than our own. Venus doesn’t have one, even though we’re
fairly certain it has a molten metal core. Scientists believe the reason behind this
is because Venus has a slow rotation around its axis and the temperatures inside are more
evenly distributed. Mars, on the other hand, did have a magnetic
field once, but its metallic core has since cooled and solidified. In any case, our strong magnetic field protects
us from the sun’s deadly solar radiation, it keeps our atmosphere from being blown away
into space, and it gives us the beautiful aurora borealis around the poles. But over the past century and a half, scientists
have come to realize that this magnetic field is weakening. As it turns out, the magnetic poles of our
planet are shifting. This means that someday in the future, north
will be south and vice-versa, and the process has already begun. While in the early 20th century the poles
were moving at a rate of about 10 miles per year, today that speed has increased to 40. There’s no real need to panic, though, since
this phenomenon has happened hundreds of times before. In fact, over the past 20 million years, the
poles have shifted every 200 to 300 thousand years or so. The last time it happened, however, was more
than 780,000 years ago, so, we’re due for another one. And according to the fossil record from previous
pole reversals, it seems that there were no major changes in plant or animal life. What we would expect to see in this several-century-process
would be an increased vulnerability to solar flares that could knock out entire power grids. Holes could be made in the ozone layer, exposing
us and the environment to higher degrees of radiation. There would be more than two magnetic poles
at a time, scattered all across the face of the planet, leading compasses to spin uncontrollably. Some animals could become disoriented, and
we would see the northern lights in unusual places. The actual timeframe here is nowhere near
to being exact. Scientists are still having a hard time understanding
all the inner workings of our planet, but estimates say that this shouldn’t take more
than 1,000 years or so. Probably even less. And before you say anything, it is important
to note that from our planet’s perspective, a millennium is a literal geological instant. 3. Mother Nature is an Expert at Recycling Over the many millions of years, Earth has
become an expert at recycling. If given enough time, our planet has and will
continue to reshape itself in a continuous cycle of renewal and rebirth. Every natural system on Earth is involved
in this process in one degree or another, and the whole thing could take hours to explain
properly. But because we know your time is valuable,
we’ll keep it short. Let’s start with life. As time marches on, organisms grow, develop,
and multiply, and then they eventually die. Their remains fall to the ground and become
the very soil they once drew their nourishment from. Layer upon layer of this soil is produced,
one on top of the other, slowly but surely turning into stone. This bottom layer of stone moves along with
the tectonic plates they’re sitting on, eventually sliding underneath one another,
or becoming a mountain if it ends up on top. If this rock layer turns into a mountain,
as two plate tectonics bump into each other, over time, rain, wind, the many rivers, as
well as other natural phenomena, grind away at that rock, eroding it and washing it out
to sea where it sinks at the bottom and turns into sedimentary rock on the ocean floor. Once here, it again transforms into metamorphic
rock due to very high heat and pressure, and eventually ends up in the upper mantle of
the Earth in a process known as subduction. Here, this rock is turned into magma which
eventually finds its way back to the surface via an oceanic ridge system, or through the
many volcanoes that dot the Earth – and the cycle repeats itself. Now, this whole process has been overly simplified
here, but this cycle the crustal rock goes through, not only recycles carbon across the
globe, but it also provides the nutrients necessary for life to thrive in abundance. If it weren’t for this process, life’s
chances on the planet would be severely compromised. 2. The Earth is Growing There is a theory circulating out there that
states the planet has been in a continuous process of expansion and contraction throughout
its entire lifetime. Known as the Expanding Earth theory, it says
that at some point in the past, Earth was 80% smaller than it is today, at which point
the continents formed its entire surface. Then it began expanding, forming the ocean
floor. While the theory does seem to have some intriguing
concepts, it does have a lot of scientific inconsistencies and is extremely unlikely. What we are really talking about here, when
we say the Earth is growing, is the fact that our planet takes in roughly 60 to 100 tons
of cosmic dust every single day. This can’t really come as a surprise to
anyone since this is the exact same process through which all other heavenly bodies in
the universe have been created since the dawn of time, including Earth itself. But we don’t really think about it still
happening, right? Well, even though it has toned down a bit
since the early days of the solar system, the process is still pretty much alive. Even if space seems to be empty, it’s really
littered with fine particles of dust, and these particles get swept up by our planet
and, in a sense, become part of Earth. Only a small fraction of this material actually
leaves a visible trail in the sky, since most of it is too tiny for that to happen. Now, even though scientists have been aware
of this phenomenon happening for a while, only with the advent of more sophisticated
technology did they come to comprehend its actual scale. Researchers are now looking at what effects
these particles have on our environment. For starters, it was observed that these particles
are incremental in the formation of the highest clouds in our atmosphere. It also acts as fertilizer for phytoplankton,
and can even affect the ozone layer’s chemistry. But these effects can be just the tip of the
iceberg, and scientists are trying to figure out cosmic dust’s many other implications. 1. But it’s Actually Getting Lighter How can this be? We’ve just concluded that Earth takes in
around 30,000 tons of space dust every year, so… how is this possible? It’s not like we’re throwing stuff into
outer space – not that much, at least – and it’s not like we’re using any of the weight
to build stuff, since that mass still adds to the overall load of the planet. Well, as it turns out, Earth is losing mass
via two major ways. One is through its core, as it consumes energy
in the form of heat. But this loss accounts for just 16 tons a
year. The real mass loss comes in the form of hydrogen
and helium. These two gases are the lightest in the universe
and oftentimes they just simply float away from Earth. They do so at a rate of 95,000 tons of hydrogen
and 1,600 tons of helium each year. So, even though we get roughly 30,000 tons
of dust, we lose almost 97,000 tons of gas. Now, when it comes to hydrogen, there’s
nothing to really be afraid of. Even at this current rate, it would take it
trillions of years before all of it could be depleted from the atmosphere and by that
time, the sun will have died out, and there will be no Earth to speak of. (Um, yay?) But helium is another matter. Even though it’s the second most abundant
element in the universe, it’s disappearing here on Earth. We’re now using it for a great deal of things,
on an unprecedented scale, and there’s only so much to go around.

  6. Yet to see a clip that dosent make me say, wow.
    Thank you

  7. Full of old ideas and speculations many of which have evidence against them. Nobody knows what the center of the Earth is like and current theory on how planets form is unsupported by the latest scientific evidence. In the first two segments on how smooth the earth is and the thickness of the Earth's crust, the constant switching back and forth between metric and imperial measures makes following his measures difficult. Also talking like it's a race to see how many words one can say before anyone realizes what one has said contributes to the confusion of this video.
    Overall a poorly made, inaccurate, confusing video. Bad information given at a speed that leaves one saying "wait! what did he just say???"

  8. Earth Venus and Mars may have had the exact same atmospheric pressures and atmospheric composition a few billion years ago.

  9. Mild echo with the audio

  10. The interaction between earths oxygen rich atmosphere and solar plasma (primarily hydrogen or protons) creates and ever increasing quantity of water on earth. Water runs downhill creating the oceans that buckle the earths crust. This is how earth is getting bigger.

  11. What about if you compared the thickness of the earths crust to the membrane under the shell of a chicken egg?

  12. Life confirmed on Earth, however the search for intelligence continues.

  13. The first fact is incorrect. The +/- 0.005 inches is in regards to the measurement of the diameter, not the imperfections on the surface of the. According to Vsauce the world shrunken down to the size of a cue ball would be the same as covering a cue ball in (I belive he said) 240 grit sand paper. I'm not so sure about Michael's explanation but even in your video the description relates to the measurement of the diameter of the ball

  14. " until recently, We believed we knew with a high degree of certainty when life begin, but now that theory has changed".

    Taking into consideration just how many times science claimed to know with certainty something that ended up having to be completely changed because they were wrong, it's odd how they can still sit there today and continue claiming that Evolution has been proven to be a fact and still have so many people believing it.

  15. This is weird to me. The earth is more of a sphere than anything that occurs naturally on earth. It seems it would be more accurate to say that the earth is "nearly a perfect" sphere, than to constantly refer to it as an oblate spheroid. The earth is roughly 0.1 percent wider at the equator and smoother than a cue ball. Earth is more of a sphere than any ball I have ever seen.

  16. Simon. What about oil being pumped out and burned up. Wouldn't that make earth lighter

  17. That explains why they redefined the definition of a kilogram.

  18. # 5 needs an update perhaps, … look up 'synestia moon' . explains how the earth & moon formed together, Thanx fer the hard werk ya do.

  19. How does anyone know that the poles have ever shifted several times over the unbelievable million of years.
    All scientists can do is guess what might have happened. None of it can actually be fact because they've really got nothing to go on, unless they made up something to match what they're saying.
    If the common man made up some kind of story like the scientists do, he would be called a lier, a nut or many other things.
    Yes, I know that's basically what we say about the scientists now. The truth is fact and always will be.

  20. Helium is from decaying radon. So, as it decays, there will be more. Just commenting on the last one.

  21. 4:47 should be known as the Tesla resonance, sorry but you are perpetratrating the corporatists burying anything to do with Nikola Tesla

  22. "First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is." Edit: congratulations to the entire production crew.

  23. If the Earth has so many bumps and dents, why do NASA pictures always show a perfectly round Earth?

    Could they be photoshopped?

    If they are, can we trust any images that NASA publish?

  24. I don’t understand how you have the audacity to even stand there acting and talking you should be copyrighted for vsauce 😂😂😂

  25. Que-ball fact is myth. I think it was on QI, but the regulation is talking about overall ball size, not imperfections.

  26. How come if we live on a basically molten planet with a thin crust, we don't have the ability, to tap this unlimited energy.

  27. Oxygen is not predominant in the atmosphere, nitrogen is about 70% of the atmosphere, oxygen is 20 – 21%.

  28. @TopTenz what would happen if you drilled to the center of the earth

  29. LMAO… helium is running out? And is being used at an alarming rate.
    Who is the biggest user..of all know helium …thats right NASA!
    I really love your vt's but you seem to only point out all that is known..or read about in books and what you and I have already been told.. or taught.
    So really.. unless you have 100% factual evidence! What is the point of all your vt's
    Such as the moon landing… so so many things you missed off..
    The flat earth vt you did. Simply spout off about what we have already been taught.
    With not 1 single fact validated by you.. other than the same words that are used to try and disprove the argument.
    And thats a real shame.

  30. Yes, I'm sure an oblate spheroid is within Billiard ball tolorance! lol.

  31. Theory. …….Yes, Theory. Evolution takes as much if not more faith than creation.

  32. I love your videos I think this is my favourite one yet and I have had the pleasure of watching countless of them keep up the excellent work

  33. The moon does not have any minerals or metals that the Earth does it did not come from us the moon was brought here so that's only 9 buddy

  34. I would recommend to watch theese videos while building a minecraft house

  35. you must watch joe Rogan cause they brought this up way b4 your video with the cue ball you poser.

  36. None of this is fact. No man has been. It's made up. Uh theory. Too old to believe hearsay

  37. I didn't see any major inconsistency in expanding planet theory other then what trolls gave. I would like to read them if they are are out there. The theory filled in more holes then brought up more questions. At face value, the theory may have inconsistency due to a lack of development, just like all theories start out. Still well worth exploring though.

  38. I haven't exactly lived on the surface of Earth my entire life. I've probably spent a few thousand hours flying lol, I actually hate flying; need to introduce non smoking and smoking flights

  39. its technically no longer believed that a direct collision caused the moon to form. now people think its due to multiple glancing blows since if it was a direct hit the moon would have had more heavy elements

  40. Simon's head looks just like the moon & the Earth. In fact if you lined all three in a row, you could see the physical relationship between Simon's head, and the Earth, also a sphere, and our moon. They could be in a museum of natural history showcase!

  41. “Only Mercury of all the other planets has a magnetic field…”

    WHAT?! You’re kidding! Your research can’t be that bad! Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune certainly have magnetic fields!

    I’m no astrophysicist and it’s three o’clock in the morning as I write this but I think you made a big boo boo! Really, you have enough trouble pronouncing simple words so you should at least be sure you get simple facts straight!

  42. The Collision Theory for the creation of the moon is patently ridiculous. The best theory for the creation of the moon is it most likely a construct. That is the best theory according to most scientists. First, many ancient people and writings spoke of a time before there was a moon in our sky. Our moon is unlike any other moon known to man in a plethora of ways. The distance at which the moon orbits our earth exactly the precise distance required to cause an eclipse statistically unlikely to have happened by random chance. Themoon orbiting in a Tidal lock. The large size in comparison to the Earth. The rock on the surface of the moon is older than the material it sits on which leads to the thinking of the center being mined out and cast upon the surface. The anomalies concerning the craters, regardless of the circumference of a crater the depth is standard across the board, also, the bottom of these craters are concave, which lends to the supposition that the moon has a tough hull which has been disguised by being covered by the debris on the surface. The best evidence that the moon is hollow and therefore a construct, Nasa placed a seismograph on the moon and when items of any significant size hit the surface of the moon it vibrates "like a bell" and it does so for an extended period of time. The collision theory is not only ludicrous with little to no evidence backing it up it is also basically "trash science". The theory of the moon being a construct is the best one we have. Alas, there is no theory for who it was that constructed it though. Thanks, Whistler, maybe research that theory and see if I missed anything I wrote this from memory and did no research recently. This theory is not a new one and has long been considered the best theory by many highly respected scientists.

  43. 9:35 When they showed this picture of Mark Hamilton the professor, I thought it looked like Mark Hamill the actor. Then they said his name, I was like WTF?

  44. Might be a dumb question, but why can't we recreate gas in the laboratory? What is it that we don't know?

  45. I am a strong believer all scientist are on crack! They come up with theory with no way to proof it and it gets taught as fact. I really believe there is no way to see past the astroid belts. If there is a massive astroid belt how could we see past it? All images on NASA web site are not the real photos but an artist picture.

  46. It would be cool to see a follow up video going into more detail about the Oxygen event – especially regarding what life forms might have looked like before that? you said some had been wiped out at 7:10.

  47. Uh, oxygen never became predominant in the atmosphere. It's in our atmosphere and it's essential to the existence of complex life on Earth but only 21% of our air is oxygen, 78% is nitrogen, and the rest is mostly carbon dioxide and argon.

  48. Paused at10:30.
    I can't help to think that Thea was an ice planet. Earth was a volcanic ball of Fire before Thea. And ice ball the size of Mars wrapping itself around a rock on fire and cooling it would be a perfect way to build a perfect planet.
    It may also explain why our oceans are all basically the same compound.
    It is different than comets and more like asteroids.

  49. So, if we manage to develop fusion power sources we also manage to produce helium. So we'll be able to keep filling balloons and doing the other things we need helium to do. We'll just need to cool the helium down a bit.

  50. Time is money…that's why i'm sitting here at 4 am watching youtube. Seriously go into it for a couple hours I got nothing.

  51. 5:40 – Wait, wait, wait… so you're saying that the climate on Earth always has been, and always will be, changing?

  52. Can you do a video on the russian hole? Video's here on youtube claim that they actually stopped because they heard men and women screaming as to say that they drilled into hell.

  53. ok first your amazed by how smooth the earth is then later your trying to explain that another planet crashed into us and that our equally as smooth moon is made of the pieces? Explain how this makes any sense?

  54. "Consuming energy in the form of heat" does not cause mass loss. You should have said instrumental, not "incremental in the formation of the highest clouds of our atmosphere."
