1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The surface temperature of a city is 20 degrees celsius. What is the temperature at 2 km above the surface if the temperature decreases at "half the average rate" of the troposphere? Show your calculations. 2. Relevant equations None really, it may be just simple math. 3. The attempt at a solution rate = 20 degrees / 2 km = 10 degrees loss / km and it says half of that so it would be 5 degrees loss per km. My answer would be 10 degrees celsius @ 2 kms. I don't know if that's right? Thanks for helping
