Answer 29.92 inches of Hg . The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure and is defined as being precisely equal to 101.325 kPa. It is equivalent to 760 mm…Hg (torr) or 29.92 inHg.One standard atmosphere is standard pressure used for pneumatic fluidpower (ISO R554), and in the aerospace (ISO 2533) and petroleum (ISO5024) industries.

Answer Air has weight. Imagine a column of air that is one square inch in cross-section that extends vertically above your head until the air runs out in space. At sea level …that column of air weighs 15lbs. If you climb mount Everest there is much less air above you in that column, so the weight of air above you will be much less than at sea level. Air pressure varies slightly according to atmospheric conditions and this variation in pressure can be read by a barometer, which gives an indication as to how the weather is going to turn out. High pressure normally means fine weather and low pressure the opposite. Air pressure is expressed in lbs per sq. in. or in bars. One bar is atmospheric pressure at sea level. Before an aircraft leaves the ground the control tower gives the pilot an adjustment that depends upon the local atmospheric pressure and by how much it deviates from normal sea level pressure so that the pilot can adjust his altimeter. The altimeter registers atmospheric pressure and reads out in feet of altitude. As the aircraft climbs the pressure diminishes and the altimeter dial shows and increasing reading in feet. The opposite as it descends. When a light aircraft lands in poor visibility it is fairly important that the altimeter is reading correctly, hence the need to adjust it to local pressure.
the pressure in the atmoshere caused by gravity
Simply by following the manufacturers instructions that come with the various "pressure" tanks and ASME codes
Boiling point of a liquid depends on the external pressure. Higher the pressure higher the boiling point. Boiling takes place only when the satruated vapour pressure becomes e…qual to the external pressure.
Varies from day to day (actually, moment to moment). If you want the pressure on a particular day, a local branch of the NOAA/NWS may be able to answer that.
the weight of the water above. . water in a 1" pipe 100' tall is 43 psi @ base of pipe. . water in a 50' tank 100' tall is 43 psi @ base of tank. . h x .434 = psi
Hydrostatic and pumping
1 atm (standard atmospheric pressure) is 101,325 kPa.
A halyard is not related to plumbing at all. - It is a rope forcontrolling sails in a boat.
The answer is: No! In an ideal gas, which air can be considered, the speed of sound is given by c = â (Î³(p/Ï)) where Î³ is the abiabatic index, p is the pressur…e and Ï is the density and p = Ï R T / M. where R is the ideal gas constant, M is the Molar mass and T is the absolute temperature.. From his equation, if temperature and mass are constant. One can see that p is proportional to Ï.. Therefore if atmospheric pressure is doubled so is the density.. Hence p/ Ï is constant.. Therefore atmospheric pressure does not affect the speed of sound. . However, increase in temperature will lead to an increase in speed.. At high altitudes, the temperature is significantly lower, and hence the speed of sound is lower. .
unless you are an alien from outerspace, i think you mean "our" atmosphere. this pressure varies with hight above ground. at sea level, the pressure is referred to as 1 atm. t…his is equivalent of the force of a column of 760 mm of mercury. if you were to go high in an airplane or on a very high mountain, you would notice a decrease in pressure. similarly, the lowest points on earth have the highest pressures.
Atmospheric pressure is the surrounding pressure around us. We live in the atmosphere and treat the atmospheric pressure as the base pressure. A pressure gauge would read 0 at… atmospheric pressure. When we define the pressure in scientific way of absolute pressure, we need to add up an atmospheric pressure to the measured pressure.
The lower the atmospheric pressure, the lower the boiling point of the liquid. For example, at sea level, water boils right at 100 degrees Celsius, but at a high elevation whe…re the atmospheric pressure is lower, the water will boil at below 100 degrees Celsius. This is why some recipes have high-altitude directions, allowing for this property. The higher the air pressure, the higher the temperature of the boiling point. The lower the air pressure is, the lower the temperature of the boiling point. In fact, in very high places like Mt Everest, the boiling point of water is so low that it is difficult or impossible to cook food.
