  • 2. Atmospheric pressure is the gravitational force within the air. Air pressure is the force of air pushing down on you.
  • 3. How do we measure air pressure? Torricelli continued Galileo’s work. He found that the column of mercury could be used to test the weight of the air.
  • 4. How does a barometer work?
    • As mercury rises- pressure is greater.
    • As mercury drops- pressure is lower.
    • Rising Barometer= better weather
    • Falling Barometer= worse weather

  • 6. Match the terms: Altimeter Aneroid Barometer Siphon Vacuum Mercury barometer Uses mercury to measure air pressure Device that moves fluids from high to low concentration without a pump Measures height or altitude above sea level Barometer without liquid Device that moves air from high concentration to low concentration
  • 7.
    • What makes all these devices work?
      • Fluids move from high concentration to low concentration.
