[10] 2. What is the O3 concentration (ug/m3) in the stratosphere at 30 km if its mixing ratio is 10 ppm? (use the US Standard Atmosphere to get P, T values, http://www.digitaldutch.com/atmoscalc/index.htm) [30] 3. Simple Greenhouse Model. Derive the dependence of the Earths surface temperature (To) on the fraction f of terrestrial radiation absorbed by the atmosphere. Assume the atmosphere is an isothermal layer some distance above the earths surface. It has temperature T1 is and transparent to solar radiation. Below is a sketch to get you started. Hint what is the energy balance of the atmospheric layer? [30] 4. What is the equilibrium temperature of a cube orbiting the sun at the same orbital distance as the planet Mercury (46 x 106 km)? Assume only one face of the cube is illuminated by the sun. (Hint you will first need to calculate the Solar constant for this orbital distance). [20] 5. To offset global w...
