One of the questions is - p = ae^-bh (equation one) Where p is pressure at height h. a and b are constants with values a = 101325 Pa and b = 1.185 x10^-4 m^-1 Differentiate equation one with respect to h and give values for the rate of change of pressure with height at a height of 4.0 x10^3 and 8.0 x10^3 Is anyone able to give me a worked answer to this question so I can see how it is done?
