# Early explorers often estimated altitude by measuring the temperature of boilingwater

MATLAB: An Introduction with Applications | 5th Edition

Problem 11

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.
