What is the volume of the troposphere?
Volume of the Earth. 4 x ¶(6378.15)3 /3 = 10.8687 x 1020 m3
Radius from the centre of the Earth to the top of the troposphere:
= 6378.15 + 16 = 6394.15 km
Volume to the top of the troposphere.
4 x ¶(6394.15)3 /3 = 10.9506 x 1020 m3
Volume of the troposphere.
[10.9506 - 10.8687 ] x1020 m3 = 8.14 x 1018 m3
Assuming the density of the air is constant throughout the volume (the density is not constant as it decreases rapidly with height; it is 1.225 kg/m3 on the Earth's surface and 0.1654 kg/m3 at the top of the troposphere, 16 km):

The troposphere is the lowest portion of Earth's atmosphere. It contains approximately 80% of the atmosphere's mass and 99% of its water vapor and aerosols. The average depth …of the troposphere is approximately 17 km (11 mi) in the middle latitudes. It is deeper in the tropics, up to 20 km (12 mi), and shallower near the polar regions, at 7 km (4.3 mi) in summer, and indistinct in winter. The lowest part of the troposphere, where friction with the Earth's surface influences air flow, is the planetary boundary layer. This layer is typically a few hundred meters to 2 km (1.2 mi) deep depending on the landform and time of day. The border between the troposphere and stratosphere, called the tropopause, is a temperature inversion. the troposphere is the layer closest to the earth (8 mi. thick) also contains about 90% of the gases in the atmosphere:contains water, dust, and tiny particles...most of the earths weather happens here Tosphere is Air
Much of the phenomena that affects our day-to-day weather takesplace in the troposphere.
The troposhere is about 7 miles high. Different articles mention different numbers, but it generally comes down to a difference in latitude. It ranges between an altitud…e of 8-18 kilometres. It is higher near the equator and lower near the poles.
Troposphere is a layer of the atmosphere where life takes place. Troposphere , then Stratosphere, then Mesosphere, then Thermosphere.
Contains normal air composed of N2, O2, water vapour, CO2, etc.
The troposphere is the lowest layer of Earth's atmosphere. The troposphere is the lowest layer.! And the reason we have air is because of the atmosphere
If there was no troposphere, all weather events on Earth wouldcease. The troposphere contains roughly 75 percent of theatmosphere's mass.
a troposphere is a layer of the atmosphere
Weather, like rainstorms or clouds.
Yes, the Troposphere is where life is in the Atmosphere! We live in the Troposphere!
- The lowest layer (about 15 km from the ground) - Contains normal air composed of N2, O2, water vapour, CO2, etc. - Temperature decreases with altitude

What is the Troposhere? The Troposhere is a layer (part) of the atmosphere, the atmosphere has four main layers. . Troposhere . Stratosphere . Mesosphere . ThermoSp…here The very last layer is thee Exosphere, that one we don't worry a lot, the troposphere is the only layer we live in, it is the very bottom of the atmosphere. At the bottom of the troposhere is warm, the top of the troposphere is cold, so the higher you go, the colder it is, the lower you go, the hotter it is, but not in the ocean, in the land you dig and dig and dig, and you go near the mantle and gets hot. If you asked that what are the layers of the atmosphere, and what does it do or just the information about the layers, I Would mostly likely answer your question first also. How is energy transferred in the Troposphere? That one I don't know yet but this comment will update soon and will answer your secondary (second) question. Celestal101Asker

it has more mass
- The lowest layer (about 15 km from the ground) - Contains normal air composed of N2, O2, water vapour, CO2, etc.
Troposphere is a region of the atmosphere. Regions also includeExosphere, Thermosphere, Ionosphere, and Chemosphere.
Troposphere is the lowest layer of atmosphere. It extend up to a height of 10km. It is a turbulent and dusty zone .
