How Does Air Move?


The air around us moves because of convection currents caused by the heating and cooling of the air. As the sun warms the land or water the air will heat and expand and rise. The cold air will replace the rising air and it will then be warmed by the land and sea. Air will also move from high pressure to low pressure. You can find more information here:
Q&A Related to "How Does Air Move"
One way air moves is through a change in pressure. A pressure gradient exists where there is a difference between air pressures. Air moves over this in a spiral motion, because of
Pressure differentials. At it's simplest, think of blowing up a balloon or a bicycle tyre (increasing the pressure), and then letting it go (decreasing it). Air moves from high to
Any action have a re-action. The action of the space-shuttle is to let out gas in one direction. This will create a push effect that moves or turns the shuttle in opposite direction

How Does the Air Move?
Air particles are incredibly important to weather-related phenomena and changes as much as it reacts from climate changes. The movement of air, referred to as wind, can manifest itself in several ways.... More »
Difficulty: Easy
Temperature or pressure differences is what causes air to move and cause wind. In the Northern Hemisphere air moves counter clockwise around a low pressure system and clockwise around a high pressure system.
