Plotting an atmospheric property.

This package provides support for plotting how U.S. Standard Atmosphere properties vary with altitude.

This loads the package.

In[1]:= <<Miscellaneous`StandardAtmosphere`

The speed of sound does not decrease monotonically with increasing altitude.

In[2]:= AtmosphericPlot[ SoundSpeed ]


The speed of particles does not increase monotonically with increasing altitude.

In[3]:= AtmosphericPlot[ MeanParticleSpeed ]


Atmospheric properties.

You can also treat the various atmospheric properties as functions of altitude. These functions understand the units defined in Miscellaneous`Units`.

This gives the mean particle speed at 5 kilometers.

In[4]:= MeanParticleSpeed[5000 Meter]
