Problem 45E

Imagine a huge space colony that consists of a rotating air-filled cylinder. How would the density of air at “ground level” compare to the air densities “above”?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Consider rotating habitat is a centrifuge, and the denser air is thrown to the outer wall. Similar as on Earth, the maximum air density is at ground-level and becomes less with increasing altitude. The height of any pressure level is determined by the density of the air. As the air temperature decreases the air's density increases.the altitude of constant pressure levels decrease from the equator toward the poles.
