Problem 15P

The summit of a mountain, 2450 m above base camp, is measured on a map to be 4580 m horizontally from the camp in a direction 32.4° west of north. What are the components of the displacement vector from camp to summit? What is its magnitude? Choose the x axis east, y axis north, and z axis up.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 15P Introduction: Pressure and volume are inversely related. Air pressure decreases as height increases. This decrease in air pressure is accompanied by an increase in volume. Step 1: Air pressure at sea level P 1 100kPa Volume of helium at sea level V 1 = 1000m 3 Atmospheric pressure at the given height P = 23kPa Volume of helium at this particular height V 2 =
