I just wanted to ask you that can u figure out anything from this:

p= p_0 * (T-0- lemda*z/T_0) ^ g/lemda*R
T_) = temperature ground per!
lemda= lapse rate R= universal gas constant!

You dont have to explain to me anything. I would appreciate it if u could just tell me to what specific topic of physics it relates to. Many thanks.

Do you mean something like [tex] \rho = {\rho}_0 (1-\frac{z}{h_2})^{\frac{\gamma}{(\gamma-1)}} [/tex] ?

If yes, it has somthing to do with the adiabatic law, and atmospheric temperature lapse rate. By the way, I think you mean lamda when you wrote lemda.
