Now that Mathematica has already embedded Wolfram Alpha, so I'd like to plot a graph: "Air Density" - "Elevation".

I know that




But I can't do that 10000 times. Is there any convenient way to do that? Such as Range[0,10000]?

One can just use StandardAtmosphereData[] instead:

ρ = Table[QuantityMagnitude[StandardAtmosphereData[Quantity[h, "Meters"], "Density"]],
          {h, 0, 10^4, 10}];

ListLinePlot[ρ, Axes -> None, Frame -> True,
             FrameLabel -> {"Height (m)", "Density (kg/m³"}]

density vs. height plot for air
