Hi folks!
I was wondering if any kind people out there could work throught the following question and explain for me as i must admit i am lost!!
atmosperic pressure p is measured at varying altitudes h and the results are shown below:
Altitude h m pressure p cm
500 73.39
1500 68.42
3000 61.60
5000 53.56
8000 43.41
show that the quantities are related by the law
p = a e(to the power of little k and little h) kh where a and k are constants. Determine the values of a and k and state the law. also find the atmospheric pressure at 10,000m if you can help i will bow down to thee! :-) Thanks
