Numerical Integration of the Hydrostatic Equation
MetadataShow full item record
A numerical process is developed by means of which the pressure thickness of an arbitrary layer of air may be converted to its (approximate) linear thickness, and vice versa. The necessary equipment consists of two simple auxiliary scales and Mannheim-type slide rule, or any calculating machine performing the operations of multiplication, division, and extraction of square roots. The tables, charts, and graphs used in other methods of determining the pressure-height relationship for a given aerological sounding are not required.
