G. Behavior of Gases 1. Gas pressure is caused by collisions of gas particles on surfaces. 2. Pressure is measured in pascals . 3. 1 Pa = 1 N / m^2 4. Standard air pressure at sea level is 101.3 kPa … this is the same pressure as a big truck (14.7 pounds / sq. inch). 5. We normally use “atm” for problems
