The standard atmosphere: Table 1.5 p.11
Height increases; Temp, Pressure and Density Decrease
Chemical composition of air: Table 1.6
Nitrogen=78.1%
Oxygen=20.9%
Argon=0.934
Carbon Dioxide=.0350%
Constant Gasses
Remain in same proportion in the atmosphere up to 80 km
Variable Gasses
Vary in proportion in atmosphere from time to time(water vapor and CO2)
Aerosols
particulate matter suspended in the air
Vertical Structure of Atmosphere
From Ground: Troposphere, Tropopause at ~10km, Stratosphere, Stratopause
Boyle's Law
as pressure increases so does density
Equation of State
P=pRT P=pressure p=density
R=unv. constant (2.87 x 10^6)
T=Temperature
1st law of thermodynamics
conservation of energy
EM Radiation is a wave
Wavelength x frequency = c
Stefan-Boltzman Law
F = (5.67 x 10^-8) T^4
T is in Kelvin
