What Do You Use to Measure Air Pressure?


Air pressure is measured using a barometer. A mercury barometer is made of a glass tube with a height of 84cm and a mercury filled reservoir at the base. The mercury in it works by creating a vacuum at the top of the tube and adjusting depending on the strength of the air pressure.
