a) 603 Paschals b) 11 km
Work Step by Step
In order to solve this problem, put all of the data in a document in excel. Then, create a scatterplot, and create a trend line. When selecting the trendline you would like, select "logarithmic." Then, approximating the surface of mars to be .0000001 meters (since 0 meters is not a valid input for a logarithmic function), we find that the value of the pressure at the surface is 603 Paschals. Also using this function, we find that the scale height is 11 kilometers.
