Please Help!!!Assume that the atmosphere is isothermal with T = 15 degrees Celsius. What is the value of the scale height (in km)? At approximately what height above sea level (z0 = 0 m) does 75% of the mass of the atmosphere lie above and the remaining 25% lie below?

    I first cnverted 15 degrees Celsium to 288.15 Kelvin and since it said isothermal i thought it was safe to assume that |dw:1358874275693:dw|

    i ended up getting( (287 J/kgK)*(288.15K))/9.81 m/s^2
