Question

Mt.Everest is at a height of 8850 m. Its base is at an elevation of 5400m. The temperature here drops at the rate of 1 degree per 100 

metres.If the temperature at the base is -5 degree c, what is the

temperature at the top?


Solution

Height of mount =8850
height of base =5400


so height above base =8850-5400=3450m
temp.Drop=1 degree per 100 meter
so total temperature drop =3450/100
                       =34.5 degree
temperature at base = -5degree
temperature at top =-5-34.5=-39.5 degree
