# Why does air exert pressure?

Answer . Air exerts pressure in the same way that water exerts pressure on a diver. Air has weight, and because we are at the bottom of a blanket of air that surrounds the earth, the weight of that air is pressing down on us (creating pressure). If you go under water, you'll feel the additional (MORE)

It is the exosphere because the molecules are spread out more. It is the farthest layer from the earth.

# Which atmospheric layer has the greatest air pressure?

It's the troposphere because : The troposphere contains 75 per cent of the atmosphere's gas. It also holds huge amounts of dust and water vapor, and is often dense with clouds and mist. Air pressure is greatest in the troposphere, because gravity pulls the atmosphere towards the Earth, squeezing mo (MORE)

# Which atmospheric layer has the least air pressure?

The exosphere is the atmospheric layer that has the lowest airpressure. This layer is the outermost layer of the atmosphere.

# Does air exert pressure?

Yes. All gases exert some pressure due to the weight of their molecules. But it depends on the concentration of the gas (mass per volume) and will vary with temperature and flow velocity. In the atmosphere, air pressure is created by gravity, which pulls down on the molecules at the surface and th (MORE)

# How can you prove that the atmosphere exerts pressure?

The original experiment that demonstrated this was a portable mercury column. If you have a large bowl full of Mercury (a liquid metal) and a 1 meter long glass tube open at one end, then you can make a simple barometer. First, completely fill the tube with mercury, and temporarily close of the o (MORE)

# Does cold air exert more pressure?

It depends on the situation. In a contained vessel (eg a tyre), then hot air would exert a higher pressure. In general outside the pressure is (fairly) constant, and it is the density which changes with temperature. Imagine if this weren't true; you could have two pockets of air next to each othe (MORE)

# Which layer in the atmosphere has the least air pressure?

Hmm... let me see. Hey, Mom, what's the answer? Oh, that's right. The Exosphere is the answer to this question.

# How can you prove that air exerts pressure?

If you evacuate all the air between 2 pieces of glass, the glass is pressed together by atmospheric pressure from the outside. By measuring the force needed to separate the panes of glass, one can extrapolate the pressure exerted on the glass.

# Give at least one characteristic of each of the four main layers of earths atmosphere?

The four main layers of the atmosphere are the exosphere, where satellites orbit; the thermosphere, where temperatures increase; the mesosphere, where meteors are slowed down; and the troposphere, where life thrives.

# What direction does air exert pressure?

All directions, just like water when you are diving. That is why chocolate-covered cream cakes (and a lot of other stuff) stay together at atmospheric air pressures, but will explode in vacuum, or why water will boil at lower temperatures on high mountains.

# Does air exerts pressure?

The simple answer is yes. But ... ... Pressure = 1/volume Hence to allow pressure =0, volume must be infinitely large. Say for example in outer space.

Judging by the fact that it is the closest to outer space, which has no air pressure at all, I believe it's the exosphere.

# Which layer of the earth's atmosphere has the highest air pressure?

The troposphere is the layer of the earth's atmosphere with the highest air pressure. This is because the troposphere is the layer closest to the Earth's surface. As a result, the air is quite dense in the troposphere. As pressure is directly proportional to density, it means that the atmospheric pr (MORE)

# Does moving air exert pressure?

air is like water--meaning that it's fluid.. and, like water, air exerts pressure when it is moving (and in any direction, too).

# How will you show that air exerts pressure?

A large syringe or a bicycle pump is the best way. Place and hold a ball over the end of a large syringe, depress the plunger and let go of the ball You can put an empty soda bottle in your mouth and suck out the air. The outside air exerts pressure, collapsing the bottle.

# What does the atmosphere exert pressure on?

The atmosphere exerts pressure on various objects on the earth'ssurface. Air pressure is generally caused by the collision of thegas molecules with one another.

# Give at least one important characteristic of each of the your main layers of earth atmosphere?

# An experiment on air exerts pressure?

As we know air is everywhere and we can't survive without air. It consists of various gases, dust particles, water vapors, etc. Air exerts a particular pressure on every single thing. Air pressure is calculated with the help of an instrument called barometer and according to it, the Earth's atmosphe (MORE)

# What is the relationship between temperature air pressure and density in the layers of the earth's atmosphere?

With increasing altitude in the atmosphere, pressure decreases andso does density. Temperature varies depending on the layer in whichthe air is. The top of the stratosphere can be -50 degrees C, aswhere the thermosphere can be well over 500 degrees C. At ground level (0 feet above sea level) we con (MORE)

# What are the earths eight layers of atmosphere?

The most widely used analysis of Earth's atmosphere is into five layers. From the surface of the planet out into space, they are: Troposphere - from the surface to between 7 and 17 km (depending on latitude) Stratosphere - Tropospheric boundary to about 50 km Mesosphere - ~50 km to ~85 km Ther (MORE)

# Why air pressure different from the different layers of the atmosphere?

The different "layers" are classifications of horizontal sections of the atmosphere, volumes which exhibit different attributes. The high and low pressure regions are areas where the atmosphere is thicker or thinner.

# Which layer in the atmosphere has the most air pressure?

The troposphere. The lower you go, the higher the air pressure. The average air pressure at sea level is 1013 mbar, or 101.3 kPa.

# Why air pressure from earths atmosphere is not the cause of gravity?

Gravity is an entirely separate entity which is a consequence only of the mass of the earth itself. In fact, the atmosphere presses down because gravity is pulling on it.

# Dose air in the atmosphere exert pressure on earths surface?

Yes. Atmospheric pressure is the pressure caused by air when it exerts pressure on the surface of earth.

# Is the atmosphere a layer of air?

Not as much "a" layer of air as it is "the" layer of air. The atmosphere is the four major regions of air: Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere

# How air exerts pressure?

# Why are you not crushed by the huge pressure exerted by the atmosphere?

Because our bodies exert counter pressure and prevents it from bursting. Because the pressure inside your body is the same and cancels it out. The entire human body, including all the bones, tubes, sacks, and fluids in it, is constructed to develop an outward pressure that compensates for the (MORE)

# Why is atmospheric pressure exerted in all directions?

Air expands to the container it is in. The container the air is in is the atmosphere. The air expands evenly in the container, so the pressure is applied evenly. However, because of the weight of air, more pressure is applied when closer to the ground then when higher up.

# Does air exert any pressure?

There is about 2 ton of air on every square foot of the Earth (less at high altitudes)

# What pressure does cold air exert?

Cold air exerts a low pressure. That is why cold air falls and hotter air rises above it.

# Is the invisible layer of air that envelopes Earth called the atmosphere?

yes....it consists of five layers. the trophosphere the stratosphere the mesoshere the thermosphere and the exosphere

# Why does atmosphere exert pressure on earth?

The atmosphere is made up of gasses. Gasses are physical substances, and all physical substance has weight. The atmosphere is 25 miles thick, and that 25 miles thick layer of gasses presses down on earth with a weight of 15 lbs. per square inch. That's how atmosphere exerts pressure on the earth.

# What is the force that air exerts on earth?

That's the weight of the air. If you were to divide the total weight of the atmosphere by the Earth's total surface area, the quotient would be the atmospheric pressure at the surface.

# Why is there more air pressure in the first layer of atmosphere?

The atmosphere consists of 5 layers: the troposphere, which we live in; followed by stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere and exosphere. Air pressure at any of these layers is typically caused by hydrostatic pressure, defined as P = hpg, where P is the pressure, h is the height or depth of fluid, a (MORE)

14.7 pounds. Atmospheric pressure is 14.7 pounds per square inch Keep in mind that unless air is trapped you do not feel this as pressure is equalized

# What is the air pressure of space in comparison to atmospheric pressure on earth?

We are so used to our atmospheric pressure down here on earth that we tend to think of it as the absolute norm; more often we don't think of it at all. The truth is that zero pressure, the theoretical pressure in deep space, or very close to it, is the situation in vastly more of the universe's volu (MORE)

# Is the atmosphere the densest layer of the earth?

No. The atmosphere is the least dense layer. The densest layer is the inner core.

the barometric pressure combined with the heat of the sun creates an expansion pressure which increase toward the earth's surface

# Why does the pressure exerted by the atmosphere increases with the altitude?

Pressure does not increase with altitude. It is theopposite; pressure decreases with altitude. The reason for this isthat there is less atmosphere to exert pressure as you increase inaltitude.

# How does air pressure change in each layer of the atmosphere as altitude increases?

Air pressure change in each layer of the earth as altitudeincreases due to variation in the density of air. At high altitude,air pressure is low due to less density of air up there..while atsea level..air pressure is at utmost of it due to increase in thedensity of air.
