Air Pressure Experiments
 

Using Air/Pushing Air

Did you know that air pushes against you all the time?

You cannot feel air pushing in on you because your body pushes outwards with the same force as the air.

 

In outer space, where there is no air, astronauts have to wear pressurized space suits that push against their bodies with the same forces as the air on earth.

Without air we could not live.

We cannot see it or smell it, but we can feel it when it moves. Just like water, air has many uses.

Sailing boats have large sails which catch the wind to push them through the water.

Windmills harness the power of the wind to grind wheat into flour or make electricity.
