1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider the case of a gas in the atmosphere. Assume that the temperature is a constant. Based on the Maxwell Boltzmann distribution, at sea level the atmosphere contains 78.1% N2, 21% O2, 0.9% Argon, and 0.036 CO2. What are the ratios at the the top of Everest? (Molecular mass of N2 = 28, Molecular mass of O2 = 32, Atomic mass of Argon = 40, Atomic mass of CO2 = 44. Height of Everest = 8,848 m) Please walk me through this 2. Relevant equations Maxwell Boltzman statistics. 3. The attempt at a solution To tell you the truth, I don't even know where to begin. I posted this on a different thread, but it wasn't properly addressed (it was ignored for the most part). I was just wondering if you guys can guide me through this problem. It would be greatly appreciated.
