Ideal gas law problem concerning the exponetial atmosphere: part 4

  1. Jan 18, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b
    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?
