College Physics Problem 1.2.7


Mount Everest, at 29,028 feet, is the tallest mountain on the Earth. What is its height in kilometers? (Assume that 1 kilometer equals 3,281 feet.)


Solution:

Convert 29028 ft to km

\displaystyle 29,028\:ft=\left(29\:028\:ft\right)\left(\frac{1\:km}{3281\:ft}\right)=8.847\:km          ☚

Therefore, the height of Mount Everest is 8.847 kilometers.
