Question: 23 consider the following data for venus and earth radius...

Question details

2.3 Consider the following data for Venus and Earth: Radius, km Surface Mean atmospheric Atmospheric mixing ratios CO2 0.96 0.03 0.007 0.0004 0.78 0.21 pressure, atm temperature, K N2 Venus 6100 91 700 Earth 6400 250 A. How does the total mass of the Venusian atmosphere compare to that of Earth? B. How does the depth of the Venusian atmosphere compare to that of Earth? (Assume that the interiors of Venus and Earth have the same density) C. Venus is smaller than the Earth and therefore exerts less gravitational pull on its atmosphere. Then how can the mass of its atmosphere be larger?
