User: Score: What layer of the atmosphere receives enough energy from the Sun to break apart molecules and atoms? ionosphere stratosphere mesosphere troposphere

Weegy: Answer is Ionosphere. The ionosphere is a layer of ionized air in the atmosphere extending from almost 80 km above the Earth's surface altitudes of 600 km and more. Technically, the ionosphere is not another atmospheric layer. [ It occupies the same region of the upper atmosphere as the thermosphere. In this region of the atmosphere the Sun's energy is so strong that it breaks apart molecules and atoms of air, leaving ions (atoms with missing electrons) and free-floating electrons. The ionosphere is the region of the atmosphere where the aurorae occur. ]
