UNDULATION

 
“Wind is a floating wave of air, whose UNDULATION continually varies.”
– Marcus Vitruvious Pollio
 
Deep, isn’t it? Marcus Vitruvious (also known as Vitruvi, Vitruvius or Vitruvio) was a Roman author, architect, civil and military engineer during the 1st Century BC.
 
He is the one who said this line a long time ago, which generates the action of the heat upon moisture, hence creating a continued rush of wind. 
 
TRIVIA: 
His discussion of a perfect proportion in architecture and the human body, led to the famous rebirth drawing by Da Vinci of Vitruvian Man. 
 
WORDS TO KNOW: 
1. Undulation: the rising and falling in waves. 
Example: Who would’ve have thought that my professor had an idea of using instruments to detect the undulation in the crust of the Earth. Smart, Isn’t it?
2. Generate: cause something to arise or come about
Example: I attended my Science class to check if our project has already generated.
3. Proportion: a part, share, number considered in comparative relation to a whole
EXAMPLE: I will give a small proportion of my lot to my sister.
