If we know the altitude we can use the result of Problem 18.88, . 1 0 0 α α - = R Mg T y p p Since , y T T o α - = m, C 10 6 .

This result assumes a uniform decrease in temperature that is solely due to the increasing altitude.

Unformatted text preview: Then, if we use this altitude, the pressure can be found: , K 273 m) (13,667 ) m C 10 6 (. 1 p m) C 10 K)(.6 mol J 315 . 8 ( ) s m mol)(9.8 kg 10 8 . 28 ( 2 o 2 2 3 ° × ⋅ ×--- ° ×-= p and , p 13 . ) 70 (. p o 66 . 5 o = = p or about .13 atm. Using an altitude of 13,667 m in the equation derived in Example 18.4 gives , p 18 . o = p which overestimates the pressure due to the assumption of an isothermal atmosphere....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
