Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Andesitic composition

    See Intermediate composition.

  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Bode’s law

    A sequence of numbers that approximates the mean distances of the planets from the Sun.

  • Chemical compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.
