  • List the layers of the atmosphere (in order) from outer space, inward.

  • Define air pressure.

  • Explain the process that causes air pressure.

  • If the air pressure on Earth is equal to the weight of a car, how come we are not crushed by it?Bag Toss Challenge!

  • Explain what the molecules of a gas are actually doing? How do they physically cause pressure?

  • Explain why on a sunny day there is high pressure, and why on a cloudy day there is low pressure.
