(a) What is the atmospheric pressure at 50 km?

(b) Estimate the altitude h at which the atmospheric pressure equals 950 millibars.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 6:36pm.86=1e^k(1km)

so the drill is to find k

ln .86=k

k=-0.15082289

so at 50km

pressure= 1013e^(-.150*50)=.538millbars

check that.
