    At an altitude of 40.00 km, the average atmospheric temperature is essentially 0 degrees C. What is the average number of air molecules per cubic centimeter of air at this altitude?
    Hint: Solve the equation for the pressure as a function of height and temperature and from this use the ideal gas equation to calculate the volume of air.
