7 Lessons in Chapter 19: Physical Science - Atmospheric Science: Homework Help
The Dynamic Earth: Internal & External Forces that Shape Earth's Surface

1. The Dynamic Earth: Internal & External Forces that Shape Earth's Surface

There are many geologic processes that shape the surface of the Earth. Not only do they build and destroy a variety of landscapes, but they also give us clues to the interior of the Earth and the forces that exist there.

Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

2. Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

Weather is the current state of the atmosphere and is determined by factors like temperature, pressure and humidity. These factors that cause periodic changes in the Earth's air masses are explored in this lesson.

Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

3. Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

Climate is influenced by factors like atmosphere, ocean currents, landforms and plate tectonics. This lesson explains how these effects affect our weather patterns, which determine climate.

Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

4. Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

Global warming is a multifaceted, complex issue. It involves both natural and human causes that can increase the amount of greenhouse gases. This lesson looks at some of the facts about global warming and how they could contribute to climate change.

Cycles of Matter: The Nitrogen Cycle and the Carbon Cycle

5. Cycles of Matter: The Nitrogen Cycle and the Carbon Cycle

Matter is constantly cycled between living and nonliving parts of the environment. Processes like photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation allow the carbon and nitrogen cycles to regenerate needed substances by recycling Earth's atoms.

Vapor Pressure: Definition, Equation & Examples

6. Vapor Pressure: Definition, Equation & Examples

This lesson explains the definition of vapor pressure, describes how vapor pressure changes as a function of temperature according to the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation, and shows how to determine the vapor pressure of a single component in a mixture of liquids using Raoult's Law.

What is a Hygrometer? - Definition & Uses

7. What is a Hygrometer? - Definition & Uses

The amount of moisture in the air makes a huge difference in how comfortable people are and when storing certain valuable possessions. In this lesson, we will explore the definition and uses of a tool called a hygrometer.
