20. Evangelista Torricelli was the first person to realize that we live at the bottom of an ocean of air. He correctly
surmised that the pressure of our atmosphere is attributable to the weight of the air. The density of air at 0°C at the
Earth's surface is 1.29 kg/m
. The density decreases with increasing altitude (as the atmosphere thins).
On the other hand, if we assume that the density is constant at 1.29 kg/m
up to some altitudeh, and
zero above that altitude, then h would represent the depth of the ocean of air.(a) Use this model to
