Solution Summary

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

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 ...
