The thermosphere is the "hottest" layer of the Earth's atmosphere. As the outermost layer with substantial numbers of molecules, it receives the most direct radiation from the Sun.

However, despite the high molecular temperatures measured there (over 1500°C) the actual energy per volume is very low. This layer, more than 80 kilometers in altitude, is practically a vacuum, and includes the orbits of most satellites and spacecraft.

True False User: In England, the knights and burgesses met together, forming the basis for the House of Commons. User: What was a provision of the Magna Carta? Weegy: Magna Carta (Latin for Great Charter, literally "Great Paper"), also called Magna Carta Libertatum (Great Charter of Freedoms), is an English legal charter, originally issued in the year 1215. [ It was written in Latin. Magna Carta required King John of England to proclaim certain rights (pertaining to nobles and barons), respect certain legal procedures, and accept that his will could be bound by the law. It explicitly protected certain rights of the King's subjects, whether free or fettered?most notably the writ of habeas corpus, allowing appeal against unlawful imprisonment. Magna Carta was arguably the most significant early influence on the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world. Magna Carta influenced the development of the common law and many constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution. [1] Many clauses were renewed throughout the Middle Ages, and continued to be renewed as late as the 18th century. By the second half of the 19th century, however, most clauses in their original form had been repealed from English law. Magna Carta was the first document forced onto an English King by a group of his subjects (the barons) in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their privileges. It was preceded by the 1100 Charter of Liberties in which King Henry I voluntarily stated what his own powers were under the law. In practice, Magna Carta in the Medieval period mostly did not limit the power of Kings; but by the time of the English Civil War it had become an important symbol for those who wished to show that the King was bound by the law. Magna Carta is ... (More)

Who were serfs?
Weegy: Here is basically all of the info you need to know about a serf. Hope it helps... Although not technically a slave, a serf was bound to a lord for life. He could own no property and needed the lord's permission to marry. [ Under no circumstance could a serf leave the land without the lord's permission unless he chose to run away. If he ran to a town and managed to stay there for a year and a day, he was a free man. However, the serf did have rights. He could not be displaced if the manor changed hands. He could not be required to fight, and he was entitled to the protection of the lord. Serfs were a step higher than slaves. Even though they were very maltreated, they still possessed some rights and privileges. Nevertheless, they would seldom die from hard work and low wages. Serfs were the crux of Feudalism. They worked the lands; giving a monetary income to their patrons (the vassals) who would in turn generate taxes to his or her lord. Who would pay homage to the king. It was all a transference of money passed down from the serfs to the king. ] User: Who were serfs? A.lords of the manor B.members of English Parliament C.peasants who belonged to their masters almost as property D.members of the French aristocracy Weegy: The answer is Letter C. "peasants who belonged to their masters almost as property" User: what are characteristics of cities? the elevation of crafts and specialized trades advances in agriculture negative population growth a greater diversity of people Weegy: the elevation of crafts and specialized trades , a greater diversity of people (More)
