Within the troposphere, on average, the air temperature decreases 6.5 Celsius degrees for every 1000 m increase in altitude (3.5 Fahrenheit degrees per 1000 ft.).Based on these atmospheric conditions, predict the air temperature outside an airplane cruising at 24,000 ft.if the temperature at ground level is 84°F. Assume that the ground is near sea-level.
