This simulation display how air density, air pressure and temperature vary with altitude.

The formulas used were from http://wahiduddin.net/calc/density_altitude.htm

h=44.3308 - 4.94654 P^{0.190263} where h = geopotential altitude (km), p=actual air pressure, Pascals
However, pressure is convert to atm (1 atm= 101325 Pa).

h=44.3308 -42.2665 D^{0.234969} were used to calculate density from altitude h (km). The unit for density D is kg/m^3

The temperature is estimated with T(h)= 15- 6.5 *h

You can drag the dot shown in the curve to change the altitude h (or drag the slider vertically up/down)

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
