Question: a metcorologist is monitoring the atmospheric pressure at various citics...

Question details

A metcorologist is monitoring the atmospheric pressure at various citics whose height above sea leve vanes. The meteorologist determinest at the atmosphcnc pressure decreases by 12% for each additional kilometer the city is above sea level. It has been determined that the atmospheric pressure at sea level is 103 kPa (kilopascals) a. Determine the atmospheric pressure in the following cities. i A city located 11.6 km above sea level kPa Preview kPa Preview kPa Preview ii A city located 11.5 kn, above sea level iii. A city located 8.5 km above sea level b. Define a function, k, that expresses the atmospheric pressure of the city, p, (in kPa) as a function of the number of kilometers, a, the city is above sea level. Preview c Use your graphing calculator to determine at what clevation above sea level (in kilometers) will the atmospheric level be less than 23 kPa? kilometers Preview
