Suppose there is a 2-degree drop in a temperature for every thousand feet that an

airplanes climbs into sky. If the temperature on the ground is 65 degrees, what would be

the temperature when the plane reaches an altitude of 23,000 ft?

23*2 = 46 degree-drop

therefore,

65-46 = 19 degrees

so there,, :)

distance = 4*8 = 32 meters

therefore,

90-32 = 58 meters BELOW sea level

so there,, :)
