Early explorers often estimated altitude by measuring the temperature of boilingwater

Chapter 4, Problem 11

(choose chapter or problem)

Early explorers often estimated altitude by measuring the temperature of boilingwater. Use the following two equations to make a table that modem-dayhikers could use for the same purpose.p = 29.921(1-6.8753x10--{;h), Tb = 49.1611np+44.932where p is atmospheric pressure in inches of mercury, Tb is boiling temperaturein oF, and h is altitude in feet. The table should have two columns, the first altitude and the second boiling temperature. The altitude should rangebetween-500ft and 10,000 ft at increments of 500ft.
