physics
The weight of the atmosphere above 1 m^2 of Earth's surface is about 100,000 N. Density, of course, becomes less with altitude. But suppose the density of air were a constant 1.2 kg/m/s^3. Calculate where the top of the atmosphere would be.

physics
A mountain-climber friend with a mass of 82 kg ponders the idea of attaching a helium-filled balloon to himself to effectively reduce his weight by 25% when he climbs. He wonders what the approximate size of such a balloon would be. Hearing of your physics skills, he asks you....

physics
Estimate the buoyant force that air exerts on you. (To do this, you can estimate your volume by knowing your weight and by assuming that your weight density is a bit less than that of water.) Assume that your weight is a about 1000 N, for example.

Your friend of mass 80 kg can just barely float in freshwater.Calculate her approximate volume.

physics
A 6.2kg piece of metal displaces 0.80 L of water when submerged.Find its density.
