Air pressure, P , decreases exponentially with the height, h , in meters above sea level: where Po is the air pressure at sea level. P=Poe^.00012h
(a) At the top of Mount McKinley, height 6194 meters (about 20320 feet), what is the air pressure, as a percent of the pressure at sea level?
Round your answer to one decimal place.The air pressure is about of sea level pressure.
(b) The maximum cruising altitude of an ordinary commercial jet is around 12000 meters (39000 feet). At that height, what is the air pressure, as a percent of the sea level value?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1at sea level h=0 so P=Po a) at mount mckinley height=6194 let Pressure be P1= Po e^(0.00012*6194) P1=0.4755Po as a percent of sea level's pressure = 0.4755Po/Po*100= 47.55 % b) Let pressure at the cruising altitude be P2 P2= P0 e^(0.00012*12000)=0.236 so percent of sea level's pressure= 23.6 %
