Homework Help: Physics

Saturnís largest moon, Titan, is actually larger than the planet Mercury. It is also one of the few bodies in the solar system that has a dense atmosphere. Data from the Voyager 1 probe indicates that the atmospheric pressure on Titanís surface is about 1.60 x 105 Pa, even though free-fall acceleration at Titanís surface is only 1.36 m/s2. Assuming that Titanís atmosphere has a uniform density of 2.32 kg/m3, at what height above the surface is Titanís atmospheric pressure equal to 1.01 x 105 Pa?
