The Changing Atmosphere of Pluto

In this atmosphere of Pluto worksheet, students use an equation for the orbit of Pluto to determine the semi-major axis, the semi-minor axis, the ellipticity of the orbit, the aphelion and the perihelion. They also determine the predicted temperature of Pluto at perihelion and aphelion and the changes in the atmosphere between these two points.
