Atmosperic pressure

Atmospheric pressure means, the air pressure of the atmosphere. The atmosphere is the shell of gas/air, which covers our earth. The air in the atmosphere has a measurable pressure depending on which high your are. You can feel the difference, when you change your altitude fast. If you travel by plane or across a mountain pass, you can feel the different levels of pressure in your ears. This air pressure of the atmosphere, therefore atmospheric pressure, presses on everything, what is covered by the atmosphere.(Also on pieces of carton.
