Calculator: elevation → pressure

This tool calculates air pressure for given elevation, if the value of air pressure at see level is provided.

Usual air pressure at sea level is about 1000 hPa (760 mmHg). The pressure drops with the rise of elevation. Highest elevated human settlements are situated at an altitude of about 5000 m above sea level. Air pressure at this altitude equals to a little above 500 hPa.

1. Calculation of air pressure at given elevation above sea level
 punktor Type in the reference air pressure at sea level into the Pressure at sea level window
 punktor Type in the desired elevation into the Elevation window and choose the unit for it (metres or feet)
