What is the air pressure at sea level?

Atmospheric pressure at sea level is the result of the force of gravity on the matter above sea level (the atmospheric gases). The amount of matter is not constant due to the height and density of the atmosphere (mostly due to temperature and water content/humidity).

Unfortunately for the student, there are many, many different units for measuring atmospheric pressure. Standard air pressure at sea level is most easily defined as 1 atmosphere, or 1 atm.

In terms of an international (ISO) standard, it is defined to be 101325 Pa or 101.3 kPa (kilo-Pascals) at a temperature of 15 °C. In meteorology outside of the United States (and sometimes among scientists in the USA), hPa (hectoPascal) is most commonly used (=1013.25 hPa)

Note that a Pascal is also equal to N/m2 - Newtons per square meter, while 1 hpa = 1 mb (millibar) which is convenient for meteorologists, as noted above. Therefore, standard atmospheric pressure also = 1.01325 bar = 1013.25 mb.

The metric value is commonly accepted to be 760mmHg(millimeters of mercury, also "torr"). "Millimeters of Mercury" is a measure that come from a kind of barometer (pressure meter) that uses a column of mercury in a glass tube to measure pressure: The higher the pressure, the taller the column of mercury.

In American units of measure, it's 29.92 in. Hg (inches of mercury) or 14.696 psi (pounds per square inch). This means that, at sea level, the weight of air pressing on every square inch of something is almost 15 pounds.

Something to think about: If you had 1 square inch of room-temperature mercury that was 29.92" tall, it would weigh ... 14.696 pounds!

Again, these are the average atmospheric pressures only at sea level. Pressure drops as we gain altitude; for instance, in Denver, approximately 1 mile above sea level, atmospheric pressure drops to approximately 12.2 PSI or 841.4 millibar.

If you were at sea level, the weight of the air pressing down on you would be 1.03 kilograms per square centimeter.or 1013.25 millibars.

What is the capital of the only country that borders both the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea?

Ankara is the capital of Turkey, which is the only country that is bordered by BOTH the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. It is worth noting that the city of Ankara itself is a landlocked city and is nowhere near the Mediterranean Sea or Black Sea; it is the country of Turkey which borders both.

Cruises and Ocean Liners
Mediterranean Sea

When is the best time of year for a Mediterranean cruise?

From April to September because during the rest of the year the mediterranean can get quite rough, although these days the modern ships are very stable and even though you do run into a storm the boat hardly rocks.

The only down side is, obivously if you travel high season every where is very busy. You'll probably find lower prices in October and November. We cruised in early November last year, and the weather was comparable to the mid-Atlantic weather, low to mid 60's in the daytime, dipping to the 40's in the evening. You'll probably have more rain at this time of year, but we only had one rainy day out of seven, so you always take a chance on the weather. August in the Med can be quite hot.
