A Simple Experiment to Demonstrate the Effects of Greenhouse Gases
Keating, C. F.
Physics Teacher, v45 n6 p376-378 Sep 2007
The role of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere is the subject of considerable discussion and debate. Global warming is well-documented, as is the continually increasing amount of greenhouse gases that human activity puts in the air. Is there a relationship between the two? The simple experiment described in this paper provides a good demonstration of the effect of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This experiment lends itself well to astronomy, physics, and Earth science classes at the high school and college levels.
