This page is in need of being brought up to date. Please help Kerbal Space Program Wiki by fixing inaccurate or outdated information.
  • Unfortunately this is currently not accurate for many cases, due to the atmospheric physics changes in 1.0.
  • Fixing it is not a simple task.
  • It is currently hard wired to provide static values for 0.02 and 0.04 on the bodies with atmosphere, as the default pressures for parachute semi-deployment. Other pressure will use an outdated formula to calculate the result. See Talk:Parachute#Semi-deployment altitudes.

Calculates the height at which the specified pressure is in meters. Returns 0 if the celestial body hasn't any atmosphere. For example 0.000001 atm (or 10-6 atm) are at the following altitudes:
