Question

An engineer living at an elevation of $2500 \mathrm{ft}$ is conducting experiments to verify predictions of glider performance. To process data, the density of ambient air is needed. The engineer measures temperature $\left(74.3^{\circ} \mathrm{F}\right)$ and atmospheric pressure $(27.3$ inches of mercury). Compute density in units of $\mathrm{kg} / \mathrm{m}^3$. Compare the calculated value with data from the mentioned table and make a recommendation about the effects of elevation on density; that is, are the effects of elevation significant?
