Atmospheric pressure

We are living in a sea of gases,which we call the atmosphere.

It exerts a great pressure on our bodies.

It pushes us inwards from all sides.

Our lungs do not collapse,because the same air pressure flows into our lungs and presses outwards.

The atmospheric pressure is sometimes called one atmosphere or one bar.

1 bar = 100000 Pa = 100 K Pa

1 atm = 101.325 X 10Pa = 101 K Pa
 
1 Torr = 133.32 Pa
