Appliances that work on air pressure: 1. Syringe Explanation: When the piston of the syringe is pulled, the volume in it increases, while the number of air molecules is still the same, resulting the low air pressure in the syringe and automatically, the air pressure outside is higher if compared to that of the air pressure in the syringe. the higher air pressure outside will force the liquid that you wish to suck to enter the syringe. 2. Siphon (for cleaning water in the aquarium) 3. Spraying pump 4. Straw All of the appliances work according to the same principle.

What is altitude and air pressure and how do they work together?

Air pressure is a measure of the mass of air above you. As the atmosphere is of fixed thickness and is made of compressible gasses, as you ascend in altitude the mass of air above you will decrease. This means as you ascend in altitude, the air pressure will decrease and vice versa.

Does cold air have low pressure?

Pressure depends more on elevation and if there is bad weather/sunny. Bad weather cause the pressure to drop. At the same elevation, cold air is denser/heavier than hot air, how hot air balloons work.

What are DC and ac appliances?

DC appliances work on direct current such as you would get from a battery. Appliances in cars generally work on 12 v DC. AC appliances work on alternating current such as the house power supply, which is 120 v in America and 230 v in Europe.

What generally happens to atmospheric pressure on a windy day?

On a windy day atmospheric pressure decreases because the higher the wind velocity, the lower the air pressure, or atmospheric pressure. This is how chimneys work, the air that moves above the chimney causes low air pressure because of the high wind velocity compared the velocity of the air inside a house. The air inside the house goes towards the low air pressure and takes the smoke with it.

How does a pressure tank work?

A pressure tank is basically a big steel can that has a compressor attached to it. The compressor keeps pumping in air to build up pressure. This compressed air is then used in tools, to air up tires, and inflate rubber balls.

How does lift work for a plane or a bird?

Basically the lift of the plane works on the balanceness of air pressure. When the air pressure is made to build more below the plane and the air pressure on the upper part becomes less, then the plane gets a lift.

Why does air pressure push on objects in all directions?

The natural tendency of air pressure is to equalize itself; without some kind of barrier or force at work, air pressure simply balances out, or spreads out. The world would be very strange if this were not so.
