Air pressure decreases as altitude increases

^ which one goes on the horizontal axis and which one goes vertical axis? how did you choose this scale? (This is for a line graph)

• science asap -

altitude on the horizontal axis and pressure on vertical because the independent variable always goes on the horizontal axis, and in this case pressure changes depending on the altitude.
