Is it possible to calculate the air density as a function of height? We know that density is given as,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]p\; =\; \frac{M}{V}[/tex]

And that pressure is given as,

[tex]P\mbox{re}ssu\mbox{re}\; =\; pgh[/tex]

But I am failing to see the connection to combine the two to get air density as a function of height. Any insight?
