I'm supposed to compare the percent composition of gases in the atmosphere at sea level to the percent composition at high altitude..

Would the percents decrease? I don't really understand

  • Chemistry -

    Although some gasses (for example pollutants over a city with temperature inversion or water vapor) tend to be concentrated in particular layers, in general the percentages would be the same.
