Gas propagation model
Model the behavior of electromagnetic radiation from a point of transmission as it
travels through gas  by using a
object. Propagation models for gas are valid from 1 to 1000 GHz, assume line-of-sight (LOS)
conditions, and disregard terrain, the curvature of the Earth, and other
Gas object by using the
Temperature — Air temperature
15 (default) | scalar
Air temperature, specified as a scalar in degrees Celsius (C).
AirPressure — Dry air pressure
101300 (default) | scalar
Dry air pressure, specified as a scalar in pascals (Pa).
WaterDensity — Water vapor density
7.5 (default) | scalar
Water vapor density, specified as a scalar in grams per cubic meter (g/m3).
Model Coverage in Hot Air
Display the coverage area for a transmitter in hot air. Specify the air temperature as 35 degrees Celsius.
