# Explain why air pressure is a result of Earth's gravity?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

# 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 how air pressure is related to temperature.?

Under controlled situations , as the temperature increases the air pressure decreases.:)

# 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

Yes, it is.

# 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

# 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

WIND

# Why air pressure from earths atmosphere is not the cause of gravity?

Gravity is an entirely separate entity which is a consequence only of the mass of the earth itself. In fact, the atmosphere presses down because gravity is pulling on it.

# 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
In Science

# How does the earth's gravity hold air around the planet?

Air has mass, and gravity pulls anything with mass. The gravity of the earth "pulls" air down towards it's center.
In Physics

# Does air pressure affect gravity?

Gravity is a function of mass and distance. So, no air pressure does not affect gravity.
In Physics

It is gravity.

# Is there air pressure in the Earth's atmosphere?

Yes, the atmospheric pressure is very important.

# Why is air pressure strongest at Earth's surface?

Because it have high dense.
