What happens to density of air as altitude increases?

Answer 1 - Air Density varies with AltitudeIf all other factors remain the same, then air density will decrease as altitude increases. Answer 2 - Another OpinionAs the altitude increase, the density decrease so the air velocity increase so the air pressure decrease and as a result we got a large amount of air mass flow rate
