“Air pressure “and “Atmospheric pressure” are two completely different entities. Air pressure is what you measure with a air pressure gauge and atmospheric pressure is what you measure with a barometer. Air pressure is the intrinsic pressure in a quantity of air whereas atmospheric pressure is solely due to the weight of air above you in the atmosphere. The aim of this experiment is to study the variations in air pressure due to air speed.
- Performing this experiment students learn about the variations in air pressure due to air speed
- Highlights the difference between Atmospheric pressure and Air pressure.
- Correlation between theory and practical becomes easier
