Problem 2

Height of Mt. Everest When Mt. Everest was first surveyed, the surveyors obtained a height of 29,000 ft to the nearest foot. State the range represented by this number. (The surveyors thought no one would believe a measurement of 29,000 ft, so they reported it as 29,002.) (Source: Dunham, W., The Mathematical Universe, John Wiley and Sons.)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Geog 240 09/27/2016 ▯ The shape of the earth and geodesy ▯ Geodesy enables absolute definitions (vs relative definitions)  Relative elevation (this mountain is 400 feet higher than that one)  Absolute elevation (this mountain is 400 feet above a commonly accepted datum) ▯ Who uses geodesy  Geographers, geologists, oceanographers, meteorologists, and even paleontologists use geodesy to understand physical processes on, above, and within earth  Because geodesy now can make extremely precise measurements ( to the centimeter), scientists use its results to determine exactly how much earths
