  14. Practical Problems Lecture 1 • Introduction: • Course Goals

  15. Practical Problems Lecture 2 • Observations of Earth’s Atmosphere: • What constitutes the atmosphere? • What can we learn about the atmosphere? • Why do we want to know about it?

  16. Practical Problems Lecture 3 • Physical & Chemical Composition of the Atmosphere: • What makes Planet Earth special? • How has the atmosphere evolved?

  17. Practical Problems Lecture 4 • Atmospheric Pressure: • The pump problem: Why can’t water be lifted more than 30 ft? • (Does the atmosphere have weight?) • (Why do we want to know air pressure?)
