  • atmospheric pressure
    • the weight of the air high in the atmosphere pushes down the air around us. this creates atmospheric pressure
    • the lower u are the more pressure above u so the higher the atmospheric pressure is
    • the higher u are the less pressure above u so the lower the atmospheric pressure it is
    • is over 100000 Pa at sea level
    • graph is curved because atmospheric pressure is affected by the density of the atmosphere which also varied with height
    • the density of the atmosphere gets higher the closer you are to sea level
