It seemed that the infrared photons were moving upwards without any movement. When you added the gas planes, the were a bit more scattered. |

2. Your car has been parked outside on a cold but sunny day. When you get in the car, it is much warmer than the air outside. In 2 or 3 sentences, explain, based on the results of experiment 3, why this happens. Be sure to tie both solar and infrared radiation into your explanation. The sunlight photons allows for the infrared photons not to settle all the way down. |

3. In 2 sentences, explain, based on the results of experiment 3, why the word “greenhouse” correctly describes the effect of gases like carbon dioxide and water vapor in our atmosphere. I believe that the elevation of the average surface temp allows what would be in the absence of the gases |

Experiment 4

1. Based solely on the results of Experiment 4, which of the gases used in the experiment are greenhouse gases? In 1 or 2 sentences, explain how this was determined. In this experiement CH4, Co2, ans H2O where the green house gases |

2. Based solely on the results of Experiment 4, of the gases you listed in question 1. above, which gas is the “best” greenhouse gas? In 1 or 2 sentences, explain how this was determined. Methane |

3. In analyzing the data collected for the number of visible photons absorbed for each of the atmospheric gases used in
