Why is air pressure greatest at the Earth's surface?

Because as you get closer to the surface of the earth, the more air that is on top of you. At the top of the atmosphere, there is no air, and everything is a vacuum, where you

How does the earth's surface effect air pressure?

Air pressure is a atmospheric pressure. Air pressure creates: 1. Different climate 2. Creation of rain 3. Creation of wind 4. It prevents small asteroids to come t

Explain the effect of gravity on earth's atmosphere?

Due to gravity, our Earth has an atmosphere in the first place. Otherwise, the gases would quickly diffuse into space. Also, gravity makes the atmosphere more dense closer t

Explain why air has pressure?

The simplest explanation is that air is composed of gases. Gases are composed of molecules. Molecules have mass. The closer molecules get to the center and bottom of the gravi

How does gravity affect air pressure?

due to the gravitational pull of earth we are now having atmosphere,ie;the RMS(root mean squre)velocity of gases in earth is less than escpe velocity of earth,so gases cannot

Does air have no weight as a result of gravity?

Air does have a weight! And it is because of gravity! Note that this is per definition true because weight is only defined in the presence of gravity. Perhaps you are confu
