  67. is an invisible, transparent, inodorous, insipid, ponderable, compressible, and elastic fluid, which, under the form of the atmosphere, surrounds the earth to the height of 15 or 16 leagues Air is essentially composed of two gases, oxygen and nitrogen, in the proportion of 20 of the former to 80 of the latter. Oxygen is the vital portion, but the nitrogen is necessary to dilute it.
