#### Solution Preview

So you need Bernoulli's equation to solve this.
Inside the cabin you are at STP - so you know P1 and the specific gravity of air at STP...
I suggest that you assume p2 is zero (high altitude). That ...

#### Solution Summary

Bernoulli's equation is applied. The cabin pressure applied in an airplane flying at high altitude are given.
