The average atmospheric pressure on earth is approximated as a function of altitude by the relation Patm = 101.325 (1 - 0.02256z)5.256, where Patm is the atmospheric pressure in kPa and z is the altitude in km with z " 0 at sea level.

Determine the approximate atmospheric pressures at Atlanta (z=306 m), Denver (z= 1610 m), Mexico City (z = 2309 m), and the top of Mount Everest (z = 8848 m).
