Ch 19: Physical Science - Atmospheric Science: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Physical Science - Atmospheric Science chapter of this High School Physical Science Help and Review course is the simplest way to master physical science and atmospheric science. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of physical science and atmospheric science.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering high school physical science material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn high school physical science. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding the internal and external forces that shape the surface of the Earth or cycles of water and matter
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about physical science and atmospheric science
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the physical science - atmospheric science chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the physical science - atmospheric science chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any physical science and atmospheric science question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a physical science and atmospheric science unit of a standard high school physical science course. Topics covered include:

  • The dynamic Earth
  • Temperature, clouds, wind and humidity on the atmospheric cycle
  • Natural factors that determine a region's climate
  • Global warming
  • The water cycle
  • Cycles of matter

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.
