Chapter 25 Review Questions

The atmosphere is divided into several layers. The troposphere is the

  • lowest and most dense layer of the atmosphere, where the Earth’s weather occurs,
  • lowest and least dense layer of the atmosphere, where the Earth’s weather occurs,
  • atmosphere’s third layer from the earth, and the region with the most dense air.
  • atmosphere’s fourth layer from the Earth, and the region with the least dense air.
