kelvin-helmholtz clouds! my question: what are the curvature effect & solute effect, & how do they affect cloud formation?

iirc the curvature effect is how bc a water droplet is round surface tension increases, hence saturation vapor pressure also increases.
solute effect is how molecules that are on the surface of water lower evaporation slightly, so vapor pressure decreases
together, relative humidity goes down, so it takes longer for clouds to form

Next Question :D
What are the different types of advection and what do they measure?
We <3 Meteo
BCSO <3 Meteo
Everyone <3 Meteo
