Questions: Notes: Troposphere-Mixed Layer(0-15 km) negative slope What are the -layer for weather different layers? -water vapour majority -temperature drops with altitude ; creates distance between earth and re-radiating surface Stratosphere- Layered Layer(15km-50km) positive slope -thin layer of gas O 3(ozone) Nitrogen (N) Oxygen (O) -absorbs energy from ozone Argon (Ar) Mesosphere-Middle Layer(50-88 km)negative Carbon dioxide (CO2). -gets colder with altitude due to lack of ozone Hydrogen (H) Thermosphere-Heat Layer(88-outer space)Positive slope Neon (Ne) -temps rise due to proximity Helium (He) Krypton (Kr) What is heat and Heat-Total Kinetic energy Ozone (03) temperature? Temperature-Average kinetic energy of particles in a substance Xenon (Xe) What About the Thermosphere? Particles moves so fast with immense heat but it can not be felt for the distance between particles Summary:Thermosphere- High Temp; Low Heat Troposphere-Low Temp; High Heat Q: How can we tell these layers apart? How the temperatures change with the altitude....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
