...Air Pressure and Wind... The Earth’s Atmosphere Atmosphere pertains to the layer surrounding the Earth which is chiefly made of gases kept in place bythe effect of Earth’s gravity at an average temperature of about 14 C. Nitrogen and oxygen predominantly comprise the Earth’s atmosphere at approximately 78.1% and 20.9% respectively while there exists trace amounts of certain elements as argon, water vapor, and carbon dioxide to account for the remaining 1%. Negligible quantities of dust, volcanic ash, and other particulates in solid form are also present in the atmosphere with the main gases to facilitate the formation of clouds. In general, Earth’s atmosphere assumes the role of shielding all living...

...air pressure that applies to Earth’s surface and any altitude within the atmosphere. Answer:Air pressure at a given location on the earth’s surface is defined as, “The weight per unit area of the column of air above that location. The pressure at any point within the atmosphere is equal to the weight per unit area of the column of the atmosphere above that point.” Where, weight is the force exerted by gravity on a mass, i.e, weight = (mass) * (acceleration by gravity). Question 4. Explain how air pressure tendency can be a useful indicator of future weather. Answer: Air pressure tendency can be a useful indicator of weather forecast... as it is the change in air...
