Why would the oil pressure go from about 40 up to almost the red lineit on a dodged 4x4 with a 5.2?

Its because your head gasket blew, filling your crankcase with coolant, diluting your oil, making it pump oil much faster. Can also be caused by a faulty plenum pan gasket leaking.This can cause an erratic oil pressure.The gakets break and will cause oil to be consumed through the p.c.v. valve into the intake.This gasket is located and mounted to the intake on the bottom side.

If you dodged a bullet, you had a very narrow escape. The image is of someone actually managing to get out of the way of a bullet fired at them. If you barely escaped something bad, you'd say "I really dodged the bullet." This is usually a figurative danger rather than a literal one -- mostly you hear the phrase in terms of a bad situation at work or home. An example would be "You really dodged the bullet when you managed to convince the boss that you really were home sick yesterday."

The doctor had to apply pressure so that the patient's wound would stop bleeding. The pressure to do well on the upcoming test was almost more than she could bear. The water pressure in my city was low yesterday.

I know in my '97 Gmc Jimmy the oil sending unit was bad when I had the same problem holding oil pressure. When I'd start my truck it had almost 40 lbs of pressure that would slowly fall off to nil unless you accelerated. Then the pressure would rise somewhat.

I think it can because there is a lot of atmospheric pressure so it can be crushed at one point.It would be crushed very quickly. The pressure on Venus is almost 100 times the pressure on earth. The gravity on Venus is less than the gravity on earth, however.

The deepest point of the ocean is in the "Marianas Trench" and it's called "Challenger Deep" wich is almost 11000 meters deep, the pressure here is literally 1000 times stronger than the normal pressure at sea level, so it would feel like nothing, because u would be almost instantly crushed :)

Without knowing more about you, I would say it is a blood pressure issue. That is what you should start getting checked out.

Low pressure - cyclone High pressure - anticyclone

It would be half of the original volume. As you reduce the volume the pressure would increase and at half the original volume the pressure would be doubled.

you would expect it to have high pressure

The pressure inside the container would decrease.

The partial pressure of Oxygen would decrease, and the partial pressure of Carbon dioxide would increase

In short, yes. The commonly-reported "pressure" talked about by meteorologists has been extrapolated down to sea level to eliminate pressure differences caused by altitude (air pressure drops much more quickly with height than it does between even the strongest high and low pressure systems). Air pressure sometimes refers to the pressure observed at a location and not adjusted down to sea level, whereas barometric pressure almost always refers to a sea-level pressure. But maybe this is too much information. A better answer would be "yes."

It's a planet covered by an opaque, dense atmosphere and it's very hot (460C or higher). The gravity there is almost as great as on Earth, but the pressure would crush humans. The atmosphere consists almost entirely of carbon dioxide and there is no liquid water.

if the well pressure switch goes with the tank then the second floor pressure would more closely match the well pressure setpoints and the ground floor would have slightly higher pressure. with the tank and pressure switch on the lower floor the lower floor would more closely see the well pressure setpoints and the second floor would get slightly lower pressure.

No, in fact you would be increasing the pressure. What you would have to do is increase the area while keeping the force constant which then would decrease the pressure.

Pressure in the glumerulus would decrease. As a result, hydrostatic pressure would also decrease, resulting in a decreased filtration rate.

The air pressure would increase. Then go back to the original pressure after the contact.
