Hi I have been reading a lot about how to calculate gas density and I am stumped. What I would like to know is how to calculate the gas density as apposed to altitude so I can use it in the terminal velocity equation found here http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/k-12/airplane/termv.html(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to know if there is a simple equation that can calculate the gas density with only a few factors and not with dew point and other factors that I have seen in Meteorology.

Thanks for any help with this
