Anyone know about the athmosphere?

Ok...the composition of the atmosphere at sea level is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% other gases.

Up to which point will those remain constant?

up to 70,000 feet altitude? or at 50,000 feet because the oxygen will start to convert to ozone from here upwards?

    The ratios remain constant but the density changes, so overall there are fewer molecules of everything.

    Below the turbopause at an altitude of about 100 km, the Earth's atmosphere has a more-or-less uniform composition.

    You want to think about Density and mass too.

    main change would be /regarding altitudes mentioned/ rapidly decreasing content of water vapours. it provides the change of the "1 percent other gasses". so no significant change, anyway
