  16. True or False • The concentrations of nitrogen, oxygen, and water vapor show very little variation in concentration from place to place and from time to time in the lower atmosphere.

  17. True or False • The concentrations of nitrogen, oxygen, and water vapor show very little variation in concentration from place to place and from time to time in the lower atmosphere. (FALSE)

  18. True or False • On a cloudless day, the tropopause is easily visible with the naked eye.

  19. True or False • On a cloudless day, the tropopause is easily visible with the naked eye. (FALSE)

  20. Outside an airplane at 30,000 feet altitude (about 10 km), the air temperature would be __________, the air pressure would be __________and the air density would be __________than (as) at sea level. (fill in each blank with HIGHER, LOWER, or the SAME)

  21. Outside an airplane at 30,000 feet altitude (about 10 km), the air temperature would be LOWER, the air pressure would be LOWER and the air density would be LOWER than (as) at sea level.
