If light travelled in straight lines, you wouldn't - but because of the varying density of air it doesn't.

noted a quantitative mathematical model on dynamic density of air traffic flow [14].
But the mission has been hugely helped by extremely low solar activity, which also reduces the density of air molecules at this height.
[rho] = density of air, mass of dry air per unit volume of moist air, kg/[m.sup.3] (This is the density in psychrometric charts and tables.)
Play depends on more than the density of air; the shape and weight of the ball, as well as the distance it has to travel, also affect how much control a player can exert.
But I disagree that the difference in the density of air and trichloramine has no impact on where the contaminated air goes.
The group found that the distance a ball bends (D) as a result of this force is related to the ball's radius (R), the density of air (?), the ball's angular velocity (?), it's velocity through the air (v), it's mass (m) and the distance travelled by the ball in the direction it was kicked (x).
