## Main Question or Discussion Point

p(h) = (p

where p0 is the atmosphere at sea level, m is the mass of an object at height h, g is the gravitational proportionality constant...

is there a specific name for this equation? is this derived from the Boltzmann’s distribution law? Also, I'm really confused about what

_{0}e)^{-(mgh/kT)}where p0 is the atmosphere at sea level, m is the mass of an object at height h, g is the gravitational proportionality constant...
