| **The height of the mountain is 5000 m, the temperature at the foot of the mountain is + 24C which is equal to the temperature at the top of the mountain**

We know that with an increase in altitude for every 100 meters, the air temperature decreases by 0.6 ° C. We know the height of the mountain, which means that we can calculate how many times the air temperature will change with rise. To do this, perform the action:

5000 ÷ 100 = 50.

Thus,

50 × 0.6 = 30 ° С – the air temperature will drop.

Now we can determine the air temperature at the top of the mountain:

+24 – 30 = -6 ° C.

This means that on the top of a mountain 5000 meters high, the air temperature will be -6 ° C.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
