What is the height of a mountain if the atmospheric pressure at its foot is 760 mm Hg, and at the top is 350 mm Hg?

As you know, with an increase in altitude by 100 meters, the pressure decreases by 10 mm Hg.

Find the difference in pressure at the foot of the mountain and at its top.

To do this, subtract 350 mm Hg from 760 mm Hg.

Will be:

760 – 350 = 410 mm Hg

We find the height of the mountain.

To do this, multiply the previously found pressure difference by 10 mm Hg.

We get:

410 * 10 = 4100 meters.

4100 m = 4100/1000 = 4.1 km.

Answer: The height of the mountain is 4100 meters or 4.1 km.
