Air is a very important element in the world, as it is necessary for life to exist. Air has many properties and qualities that make it unique. For instance, air always becomes saturated when it reaches its maximum capacity of moisture or water vapor.

This saturation point can be an indication of how humid the climate around you is because if there are more clouds in the sky than usual, then there will also be more water vapor in the air which will cause humidity levels to rise even higher. In this blog post we’ll talk about what happens when air hits its saturation point, how hard rainbows work and why airplanes fly so high up into our atmosphere.

What happens when air hits its saturation point?

Air becomes saturated when it reaches the maximum capacity of moisture or water vapor. This is usually an indication of how humid the climate around you is because if there are more clouds in the sky than usual, then there will also be more water vapor in the air which will cause humidity levels to rise even higher. When air becomes saturated, rainbows form and airplanes fly so high into our atmosphere.

Planes fly so high for a reason-  The amount of oxygen that can exist at different altitudes varies greatly; as altitude increases, density decreases. For example, while airplane cabins often have only one-third normal atmospheric pressure (29% O), they still contain about 89% oxygen content.
