Adding Albedo and Atmospheres

In a previous article in this journal, we reported on a laboratory activity in which students used a derivation from the Stefan-Boltzmann law to calculate planetary temperatures and compare them to measured values from various (mostly online) sources. The calculated temperatures matched observed values very well with the exceptions of Venus and the dwarf planet Pluto. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
