A jet flies at an altitude of 15,000m. What is the approximate air pressure at that height?

##### Solution Summary

The solution explains the problem and shows the calculations to arrive at the answer.

##### Solution Preview

P = d*g*h = gauge pressure
d = density of air = 1.3 Kg/m^3
g = 9.8 m/sec^2
h = 15000 meter
=> P = 15000* ...
