I think I have a general idea but the only two people I know that owned a barometer are dead....
The intense awkward feeling when trying to order beer in litres at the bar
**** I knew it, I'm never traveling abroad...
Man, that's a very loaded question!!
Shoot AFTER they've answered the question!!
My understanding is warm air is lighter than cold so is a lower pressure allowing higher pressure areas to move under it.....but I could be completely wrong so give me another 50 yrs to find out before you shoot me too!
It's a measurement of atmospheric density. In english just for you sweetcheeks.
A barometer measures the weight of the atmosphere per square inch (pressure) and compares it to the weight of a column of mercury.
Barometric pressure is just plain old atmospheric pressure - it's not special in any way. A barometer is just a tool used to determine what that pressure is at a given time and place.
All you need to know is that when it is changing, your joints hurt.
Joke--can't post answer here,,,,
You know what the definition relative humidity is ?????
PM me for the answer ......
ughhh I know this all too well...
My thinking was that it was atmosperic pressure,temperature and humidity combined???
OK....he's still confused, great, no one gets shot yet. Keep it up boys!
Where do you live exactly???
basically the weight of the air.
High pressure = good weather
Low pressure= bad weather- rain, storms, temp change, etc.
you meen one of these things??
Yes, the one on the left. The one on the right is a Galileo thermometer. Looks like a black-light reactive one too.
hey boggerless, where did you get that? That looks cool and think maybe I should have one just for the hell of it.
my wife got for me for Christmas.i can't find the dam instructions,it gives a good description of barametric pressure.i work outside so the weather is important to me. when that rain moved in a few days ago the water almost came outta the tube.i'll ask her where and PM you.
IIRC wildlife will move better/feed/ more active when a Low pressure system is approaching. When the low pressure is actually over the area the activity will slow especially with fish. I've read that low pressure causes their swim bladders to swell giving them a "bloated" feeling which makes them not want to feed. Once the low pressure passes and high pressure dominates the activity will be more normal. Just some totally useless facts for you.
what i find weird is the orange 72 degree floaty thing is at the top when i wake up and goes to the bottom within 10 minutes of me being up??weather i get up at 9am or 1pm.
