Homework Help: Physical Chemistry Barometric Derivation

  1. Oct 3, 2009 #1
    Physical Chemistry Barometric Derivation!!!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Derive an expression for the barometric equation that takes the temperature dependency (To=T-az) into account. Where To=ground level temperature, T=temperature at an altitude, a=proportion constant, z=altitdue

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know how to derive the barometric equation formula to get to ln(p/po) which i know has to be part of the final expression. however, I having trouble with the integral on the other side. should i integrate for dz or dT?
