Estimate the pressure , in atmospheres, at the following locations:Odgen Utah(1430 m above seas level);Leadville colorado(3090 m) Mt. Whithney (4420 m) and various other cities above sea level. (assume that the pressure at sea level is 1 atm.)

2. Relevant equations

P(z)=P(0)exp(-mgz/kT)?

3. The attempt at a solution

P(0)=1.0105e5 pascal = 1 atm.

how would I determine the mass and temperature. should I consider the molar mass of air molecules?
