## Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Temperature Lapse Rate = -Acceleration Due to Gravity/Universal Gas Constant*(Specific Constant-1)/(Specific Constant)
λ = -g/R*(K-1)/(K)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Temperature Lapse Rate - Temperature Lapse Rate is the rate at which an atmospheric variable, normally temperature in Earth's atmosphere, falls with altitude.
Acceleration Due to Gravity - (Measured in Meter per Square Second) - Acceleration due to Gravity is acceleration gained by an object because of gravitational force.
Universal Gas Constant - Universal Gas Constant is a physical constant that appears in an equation defining the behavior of a gas under theoretically ideal conditions. Its unit is joule*kelvin−1*mole−1.
Specific Constant - Specific constant is the standard constant.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Acceleration Due to Gravity: 9.8 Meter per Square Second --> 9.8 Meter per Square Second No Conversion Required
Universal Gas Constant: 8.314 --> No Conversion Required
Specific Constant: 0.85 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
λ = -g/R*(K-1)/(K) --> -9.8/8.314*(0.85-1)/(0.85)
Evaluating ... ...
λ = 0.208011999603787
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.208011999603787 --> No Conversion Required
0.208011999603787 0.208012 <-- Temperature Lapse Rate

## Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant Formula

Temperature Lapse Rate = -Acceleration Due to Gravity/Universal Gas Constant*(Specific Constant-1)/(Specific Constant)
λ = -g/R*(K-1)/(K)

## What is meant by temperature lapse rate?

The Lapse Rate is the rate at which temperature changes with height in the Atmosphere. Lapse rate nomenclature is inversely related to the change itself: if the lapse rate is positive, the temperature decreases with height; conversely if negative, the temperature increases with height.

## What are the causes of temperature lapse rate?

Earth's environmental lapse rate is the decrease in temperature with increasing altitude in the atmosphere. The density of air molecules in the atmosphere affects the air pressure, the force of air exerted on Earth's surface, which is the highest at sea level and steadily decreases with altitude.

## How to Calculate Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant?

Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant calculator uses Temperature Lapse Rate = -Acceleration Due to Gravity/Universal Gas Constant*(Specific Constant-1)/(Specific Constant) to calculate the Temperature Lapse Rate, The Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant formula is defined as the rate at which an atmospheric variable, normally temperature in Earth's atmosphere, falls with altitude. Temperature Lapse Rate is denoted by λ symbol.

How to calculate Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Temperature Lapse Rate given Gas Constant, enter Acceleration Due to Gravity (g), Universal Gas Constant (R) & Specific Constant (K) and hit the calculate button.
