holypony idk what this means

If the assumption is made that the atmosphere is divergence-free, the curl of the Euler equations reduces into the barotropic vorticity equation. This latter equation can be solved over a single layer of the atmosphere. Since the atmosphere at a height of approximately 5.5 kilometres (3.4 mi) is mostly divergence-free, the barotropic model best approximates the state of the atmosphere at a geopotential height corresponding to that altitude, which corresponds to the atmosphere's 500 mb (15 inHg) pressure surface.

First of all, where, how, and/ or why do you find information of this sort in general? XD
Second, you're not the only one who's confused.

I can tell you what it means, but first I need a cupcake.

Seriously, I know.

Now explain in your own words what it means without using the above links.
