Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What equation would you use to find the height of the air pressure when it is 75% of the air pressure at sea level???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first solve that equation for h. so that on one side you would have h=the rest of the formula. and then solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then set .75 equal to the equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If \(\Large P_0\) is the pressure at sea level, then 75% of this pressure is \(\Large 0.75P_0\) so we replace P(h) with \(\Large 0.75P_0\) dw:1433451680756:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You'll find that the \(\Large P_0\) terms cancel out (when you divide both sides by \(\Large P_0\)) dw:1433451757312:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you'll be left with \[\Large 0.75 = e^{0.0012h}\] solve for h to get the height needed
