# Atmospheric pressure from altitude Calculator

## Calculates the atmospheric pressure at the present location from the altitude and temperature, and sea-level pressure. | ||

The atmospheric pressure observed is adjusted to the equivalent sea level pressure in order to construct the isobaric weather map. If the altitude is more than 11km high above sea level, the hypsometric formula cannot be applied because the temperature lapse rate varies considerably with altitude. |

- For most occasions, I bet this is perfect. it would be great if I could do the following:

1. allow me to select units out. (yup, I can convert myself... just lazy :) )

2. Show me the formula with variables before adding values to them. What would be even better is a 1-page walkthrough of how to solve the problem on paper (for those of us who don't have a formal education)
