5- logP = a/ ( 15500) -log P = a/ (15500) -5 $\log (P) = 5 - \frac{a}{15500}$

lets take the first one ( Mt Everest ) 8850 = 15500( 5 - logP to the base 10) ( or lgP) lgP = 4.429 P = 26855 Pascals

$P = e^{ 5 - \frac{a}{15500} }$

5. anonymous

then just sub in different values of a, now its just a calculator exercise

6. anonymous

Just substitute the value of a as the height of the mountain and then do what i showed you

7. anonymous

P = e^ ( 5 - [ a/(15500) ] )

how I caculater to get answer P = 26855 Pascals

9. anonymous

ok here, P=10^(5-(8850/15,500)) =26855.44
