What happens to air pressure as you move away from the Earth's surface?

Air pressure decreases as you move away from Earth's surface. The higher up you go, the thinner the air becomes. Thinner air means less density and/or less pressure. This is t

Describe atmospheric pressure as resulting from weight of air?

  Answer   Simply put, atmospheric pressure is the force exerted on a measuring point by the weight of the air molecules on top of that point. Standard atmospheric

EXPLAIN how earth's gravity affects objects that are on or near earth?

All mass attracts all other mass, thats a fact. The force due to gravity between the earth and another object, is dependent on their combined mass (earth and object), and the

Why is air pressure greater near earth's surface?

Imagine this scenario: a pyramid of cheerleaders. The ones at the bottom feel more pressure, because there's more people on top. The ones on top feel less pressure because the

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

Explain why the force of gravity is not exactly the same everywhere on earth's surface?

The elevation, i.e. radius from the center of the Earth, is not constant around the Earth. You have mountains and you have oceans, with widely varying elevation. Also, the rad

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 confus
