Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the African continent and rises to a height of
approximately 5900m above sea level.Take the gas constant to be 287 J/kg K and the temperature
lapse rate to be 0.0065 K/m.
It is known that altitude sickness can occur to human beings when the absolute pressure of the
atmosphere drops below 75 kPa.Determine if normal human beings can scale half of the mountain
without feeling uncomfortable if the pressure and temperature at ground level is 101 kPa and 25°C
