(a) What would be the height of the atmosphere if the air density were constant? 7.919 km

(b) What would be the height of the atmosphere if the air density decreased linearly to zero with height?

I need help on part b

**bobpursley**, Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:33pmb) figure the height if the air density was the average of 1.3 and 0, or 1.3/2

h*area*density*g=101300N*area

h= 101300/(g*density) in meters
