## Q. 4.P.12

If temperature does not change with height, estimate the boiling point of water at a height of 3000 m above sea-level. The barometer reading at sea-level is 98.4 kN/m² and the temperature is 288.7 K. The vapour pressure of water at 288.7 K is 1.77 kN/m². The effective molecular weight of air is 29 kg/kmol.
