As dry air moves upward it expands and in doing so cools at a rate of 1 degrees Celsius for each 100 m rise up to about 12 km
If the ground temperature is 20 degrees Celsius find an expression for the temperature T as a function of the height H
the answer is T=2010h(h in kilometers) please show and explain steps thanks

Math 
Reiny,
look at a table we can set up
distance  temp ......... by formula
0...................... 20 , T = 20  10(0) = 20
100 m or .1 km.. 19 , T = 20  10(.1) = 19
200 m or .2 km..18 , T = 20  10(.2) = 18
...
...
5000 m or 5 km.. 30 , T = 20  10(5) = 30
