## Homework Statement

Taking atmospheric pressure at sea level to be 1x10^5 pa CPa and the density of air at sea level to be

about 1.2kg/m^3,estimate the atmospheric pressure in London 550m above sea level. For this calculation, it is easiest to assume that air density doesn’t change with height – briefly discuss

the validity of this assumption

## Homework Equations

patm= rho g h

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, I did p=pgh- 1.2x9.8x550 and substracted the answer by the atmosperhic pressure of the sea to get the answer? Am I right?
