    The Effect of Temperature on Air Pressure DESCRIPTION: My project consists of a series experiments to determine the effect of air pressure in a given environment at various temperatures. The experiments I chose to conduct are: 1) Heat an ordinary pop can on a hot plate and then putting the can upside down in cold water to see the effect of a fast change in temperature. 2) Partially full milk jug with hot water, put the cap on tightly, and let it sit for one hour to see the effect of a slow

    the gas pressure sensor valve, then twist in a clockwise motion. Prevent gas leakage by covering the stopper and flask's top with parafilm. Twist the white valve until it is perpendicular to the valve stem in order to close the two-way valve. 3. Use a syringe to collect 3.0 mL ethanol (EtOH). Twist the syringe so that it attaches to the two-way valve. Wait until the TA instructs you to put the flask into the water bath. 4. Using LabQuest2, connect the temperature

    distance from the center of the earth. If the object were falling in a vacuum, this would be the only force acting on the object. But in the atmosphere, the motion of a falling object is opposed by the air resistance or drag. The drag equation tells us that drag is equal to a coefficient times one half the air density (R) times the velocity (V) squared times a reference area on which the drag coefficient is based. The motion of a falling object can be described by Newton's second law of motion, Force =

    ball, the individual will! The soccer ball is a very interesting object. A soccer ball has to have a certain amount of air pressure in order to work properly. The air also affects the soccer ball’s flight. The soccer ball is also made of different kinds of material and has different sizes. In the next couple of paragraphs I will tell you more about a soccer ball and the air pressure. The first soccer ball was a rubber soccer ball made of pig or ox bladder with leather in the 1800s (The Science of

    order to explain how air pressure drops when the temperature does you would need to use the concept of the ideal gas law. This states that pressure times volume is equal to the amount of gas times the ideal gas constant times temperature. This formula proves that when it is cold, the pressure in a football decreases, causing it to naturally deflate itself. (Florio,2015) If footballs are inflated indoors and they are brought outside in a fifty degree environment then the pressure in a ball will drop

    and there is a lot of risk involved with scuba diving. Scuba, which is actually an acronym for “self-contained breathing apparatus”, Allows divers to dive deeper and stay submerged longer. Scuba comes a long way from other forms of diving by using an air-tank and regulator. This is what allows them to stay under longer and dive deeper. Scuba originally began with military and commercial applications, where it is still used today. But now, by far the largest group of divers is “Recreational Divers”.

    many of the maladies noted above. This project sets out the research, design, and fielding‑testing of a working prototype of HASS. What happens to the body when people breathe at higher elevations? On high mountains, the air is cold and completely dry. As inhaled air passes through the nose or mouth, it is warmed and humidified, sucking both heat and water from the body, and these are not recovered during exhalation. On the highest mountains where breathing is so greatly increased; this heat

    scanned the morning skies for any cloud that might bring unwanted rain. There was none. Satisfied with my observation, I went into my cabin, and checked the weather instrument. All was fine, except that the surrounding air pressure was dropping quickly. I was not unduly alarmed. Air pressure fluctuated at sea and thus, I never realized what was about to come. Had I realized, I would have probably abandoned the original course and head for shore. Around noon, the winds began to pick up. Hoping to gain

    velocity is affected by air temperature. When air warms and cools, it changes density, which creates air pressure differences that cause wind. In the desert, temperatures may range from 40º F at night to more than 120º F in the daytime. Because of this temperature fluctuation, wind is generally stronger in desert areas. There are many windy areas in California. It is usually windier during the summer months when wind rushes in from cooler areas, like the ocean to replace hot rising air in California’s deserts
