What makes the earths atmosphere a heterogeneous mixture?

Answer :

A heterogeneous mixture is the mixture which is made up of two or more substances in a undefined ration or proportion. The Earth’s atmosphere is a heterogeneous mixture because density of various components of gases is different in Earth’s atmosphere. The heavier gases such as CO2 and O2 of the atmosphere are present near the earth’s surface of the atmosphere whereas lighter gases like O3 i.e. Ozone gas occupy the higher level of the atmosphere and therefore, the components of atmosphere are not distributed in equal amount.

So, the components of atmosphere are not equally distributed.
