Calculator: Estimated Atmospheric Pressure at Altitude

The following web site has a calculator for estimating atmospheric pressure at altitude:


This site also mentions altitude sickness and training at altitude.


Formula: Estimated Atmospheric Pressure at Altitude


p0 (kPa) : sea level standard atmospheric pressure = 101.325

g (m/s^2): Earth’s surface gravitational acceleration = 9.80665

L (K/m): temperature lapse rate = 0.0065… 90 more words


Calculator: Convert Feet to Meters

Here is a web-site that allows the conversion of feet to meters:


A runner cares about altitude.  As altitude increases, the air gets thinner.


Formula: Convert Feet to Meters

d1: distance measured in feet

1 foot = 12 inches

1 inch = 2.54 centimeters

1 meter = 100 centimeters

d2: distance measured in meters = d1 * 12 * 2.54 / 100… 33 more words
