Atmospheric pressure V decreases as altitude h increases. At a temperature of the pressure is 101.1kilopascals kPa at sea level, 86.4 kPa at h = 1 km, and 77.1 kPa at h = 2 km. Use a linear approximation to estimate the atmospheric pressure at an altitude of 3 km. Please round your answer to the nearest tenth.
