Force exerted by the weight of air?
14.7 pounds per square inch
When you standing on the floor does the floor exert an upward force against your feet How much force does it exert?
Because your feet are not accelerating, the force exerted by the floor upon your feet must be exactly the same as the force exerted by your feet on the floor. If you are standing, the amount of force exerted by your feet, and thus the amount of force exerted by the floor, is equivalent to your weight.
How does the force of gravity exerted by the Sun on Jupiter compare to the force of gravity exerted by Jupiter on the Sun?
The pressure(force per unit area) exerted by the weight of air on anything. If you carry a school bag you feel pressure on your shoulders. The air above you in atmosphere also has weight and its exerting pressure on you everyday. Air is a mixture of gases and its molecules are in constant rapid motion. If we put air inside a container the molecules collide with the container walls and exert force on them. This…
An important characteristic of the Earth's atmosphere is its pressure as it often determines wind and weather patterns across the globe. By definition, atmospheric or air pressure is the force per unit of area exerted on the Earth's surface by the weight of the air above the surface. The force exerted by an air mass is created by the molecules that make it up and their size, motion, and number present in the air. These…
