This is not a homework, but it seems that this is may be the most appropriate forum for my question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Consider that there is a column of homogen gas, h meter high. Under the assumption that gas is compressible, how can we determine the function of density (or pressure) related to height? Of course gravity is parallel to the column axis. As you may have guessed, I think this is similiar to a question about the atmosphere's pressure.

I would like to try solving the equation but I don't even know how to start....
