Show that if the temperature in the atmosphere is independent of altitude, then the pressure as a function of altitude y is

p=(p initial)e^(-mgt/kT)

Where m is the average mass per molecule of air.

I really have no idea where to start. Please help!!!! Thank you so much!!!

I thought maybe you use the ideal gas law and manipulate the variables to get it to match. I tried, but I couldn't get anywhere. Thanks
