Unformatted text preview: Standard Atmosphere, the temperature varies according to T = T z = z = T T The lapse rate is = 18.85 o R/mi = 18.85 o F/mi. Also, we are given T = 50 o F and T = 42.6 o F. So, z = X 50 o F 42 . 6 o F 18 . 85 o F / mi ~ X 5280 ft mi ~ = 2073 ft Therefore, based on the U. S. Standard Atmosphere, we conclude that the towers height is 2073 feet. The actual height is 2063 feet....
