Mary J. Bojan Chem 110 PRESSURE Pressure: force/area F(newtons)/A(m 2 ) SI Units: 1N/ m 2 = 1Pa Pascal Standard atmospheric pressure**: 1 atm 1.013x10 5 Pa 1 atm = 760 torr (mm Hg) 1 atm = 14.7 lb/in 2 **real atmospheric pressure varies with altitude and weather 2 What causes atmospheric pressure? How big is one atm?
Mary J. Bojan Chem 110 Pressure decreases exponentially with altitude. WHY? What is pressure? 3 Pressure at any altitude depends on weight of gas above it.
