Commercial jet aircraft fly at attitudes of about 11.2 km above sea level. What percentage of the atmospheric mass is above these jets? a. A Commercial jet flying at 11.2 km above sea level has 25% of the atmospheric mass above it. 2. What percentage of the atmosphere is below Mt. McKinley (elev. 6.19 km)? a. Approximately 55% is below Mt. McKinley. 3. What percentage is above Denver (elev. 1.62 km)? a. Approximately 90% is above Denver. Using the graph of percent atmospheric mass above as a function of height, estimate the atmospheric pressure at: 1. The height of commercial jet aircraft (11.2 km) a. 1013.2 X 25% = 253.3 2. The top of Mt. McKinley (6.19 km) a. 1013.2 X 45% = 455.94 3. Denver (1.62 km) a. 1013.2 X 90% = 911.88
