i don't know but i have a 88 f-150 with a 4.9 w about 125000 miles on it and it does the same thing rides just to left of the n in normal. i spoke to an employer at a ford dealership and he said that it was nothing to worry about. he said it was just a bad sending unitand the gauges are just idiot gauges and as long as there is some needle movement in the gauge than there is enough oil pressure. that's why they just have the big "normal" area on the gauge and no acual numbers to compensate when a sending unit is putting out a little more or less volts than it should be. the needle remains in the normal area. but is long as the needle moves at least in the normal range there is nothing to worry about. this coming from from a ford dealership mechanic

Low and high pressure systems. Obviously if you have a Low pressure system the barometric pressure will get low. High pressure causes the barometric pressure to rise.

Weight causes density, density causes pressure, pressure causes heat. Heat and pressure change rocks into other rocks, which are metamophic.

I have a science test this week and was wondering what causes air pressure differences on our planet?

User Avatar

Uneven heating in the atmosphere causes pressure differences and when air is in high pressure, it moves toward an area of lower pressure, and that is how wind starts.

Heat. The addition of heat causes expansion and spreading of the molecules which in turn causes an increase in pressure.

Their density, the depth at which the pressure is measured, and the gravity.

Barometric pressure measures the weight of the air.

You first need to get an oven. Then seal the oven door with silicon glue so no air can get out. Then turn on the oven, a few minutes later, turn the oven off. Since heat causes expansion of Air, it makes more pressure, and pressure causes heat. Then the heat causes expansion, expansion causes pressure, pressure causes heat. and the cycle goes on and on..........
