These are some great atmospheric pressure experiments that help teach kids complicated weather concepts in a very simple and fun way!
Learn everything from how clouds form under low atmospheric pressure, to how to crush a bottle with high atmospheric pressure right here!
Atmospheric Pressure Experiments
- How To Make A Cloud In A Water Bottle– This is the simplest and easiest way that I have discovered how to make a cloud in a bottle!
- Rising Water Experiment Step by Step– Learn about the properties of air pressure by watching water get pulled into an upside-down jar!
- Hot and Cold Balloon Experiment– Inflate and deflate a balloon by simply heating up or cooling down the air inside the balloon!
- Air Pressure Bottle Experiment– Use a balloon filled with air pressure to power a homemade drink dispenser!
- Collapsing Plastic Bottle Experiment– This is a simple and fun way to use the physics of air pressure and temperature to crush a bottle!
Atmospheric Pressure Experiments Explanation:
All of these experiments happen thanks to the difference between high atmospheric pressure and low atmospheric pressure!
In the wonderful world of weather, high pressure air always moves towards low pressure air.
This is the reason why gets really windy if you are in an area stuck between a high-pressure and low-pressure system.
Each of these experiments uses the difference of high and low pressure as the force that pulls water into a jar, powers a drink dispenser, inflates a balloon, collapses a bottle, and even makes a cloud!
