the most likely answer should be yes because you can feel yourself getting less energy so that means that it is likely to be increasing

Air pressure decreases with increase of height.

When altitude increase, oxygen will decrease

Air pressure decreases as altitude increases.

They are related because as air pressure increases altitude decreases or altitude increases air pressure decreases

As altitude increases, air pressure decreases. As altitude decreases, air pressure increases.

FALSE. air pressure DECREASES as altitude increases

Air pressure increase with lower altitude. Atmospheric pressure is due to air mass loading down to surface, high altitude had smaller amount of air mass on top.

It decreases. Air pressure is simply the pressure of all the other air on top of it. As you increase in elevation, there is less air on top of you. Therefore, the air pressure is less. As your altitude decreases, there is more air on top of you, therefore, the air pressure increases. Same with water. As you descend, water pressure increases. More on top of you.

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

False, air pressure goes down as altitude increases. Air acts like water in the sense that they are both fluids. If you are on the surface of the earth you are in the bottom of the fluid just like water the pressure is higher on the bottom. So when you increase altitude you are reaching the top of the fluid therefore decreasing pressure.

Increased altitude means decreased air pressure.

No. Air pressure decreases as altitude increases.

No. Air pressure decreases with altitude.

Air pressure increases as altitude decreases.

Air density, like air pressure, decreases with increasing altitude

This would actually be a simple answer: Pressure decreases. Simply because of the fact that as altitude increases, the less air there is on top of you, and the lower the pressure would be.

As altitude increases, temperature increases by 12.5oC every 1km upwards, and pressure rapidly decreases.

As the altitude increases, the pressure and the density of the atmosphere decrease.

Air pressure close to surface of the earth is 1 atmosphere. But as the altitude increases, air gets thinner in other words the molecules in air are farther than the one close to earth's surface. This causes the atmospheric pressure to decrease as we increase in altitude.

air pressure decreases as alitude increases an vise versa

decrease as if you go deep into the earth the pressure increases If you blow a balloon up at sea level, and take it up to the top of the largest mountain, if the balloon hasn't pop, it would be bigger there than at sea level, because there is less air pressure as you increase your altitude, so the air within the balloon was "compacted" more or less at sea level and brought to a altitude where air was thinner and the air within the balloon would expand to try to compensate for the difference in pressure.

No, it is not. The pressure decreases as the altitude increases.
