i)

Understanding Air Pressure

Understanding air
pressure
Kinetic theory of gasses
- tiny moving particles
Why they are moving?.....do you have any

idea?
Because of kinetic theory

Gas moving in straight lines until they collide

with one another or with wall of container.


Collisions cause the air pressure
Moving all directionshow?

Air pressure around us measured by an instrument

called aneroid barometer


Pressure produce by air in the earths atmosphere

is known as atmospheric pressure


Air pressure decrease when go higher the sea

levelwhy?
Go higher less air..so pressure low at top of

mountain

THANK
YOU.
