You think a counter to gravity electrical field about the earth causes vapors and tiny particles of various densities to be suspended in the atmosphere. I think the electrical fields about particles cause them to interact with each other while suspended by other more ordinary means, such as density/convection considerations, which are easily explained by thermodynamics, in agreement with [not counter to] gravity, and demonstrable in my kitchen. I further have explained that simple convection is able to account for charge separation in the atmosphere and in clouds, because of the electrical interactions between particles of various sizes regardless of relative particle mass. You think the KE of evaporation is like shooting a bullet out of a gun, and that the bullet must come down [under "gravity alone"]. I say that if the bullet has enough KE it does not come down, even under gravity. I say insolation is the natural cause of that KE, although other local energy transformations are in play in various situations. You seem to insist that electrical fields drive counter to gravity motions, regardless of particle size or density. While agreeing to orbital vector geometry [easily explanable in gravitational terms], yet you disallow that "normal" KE of thermodynamics can balance the effects of gravity for even the tiniest of particles. I still say it does not serve EU to try to make unmeasured electric fields do things they are simply unnecessary for. I don't know where else to go in this debate.
Which is why I am trying to just focus on the mechanics in realtion to a single particle of Hg. Unfortunately you just keep restating that "thermodynamics does it" and retreating to vague desinty/convection explanantions; neither of which makes any sense for Hg particles suspended at room temperature for what could be an infinite period of time. Without specifically explaining how the particle reacts with the air molecules to maintain suspension, you may as well just be saying it's god or magic.
