From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Atmosphere (unit)) The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure defined as 101 325 Pa (1.013 25 bar). It is sometimes used as a reference or standard pressure.

An atmosphere (from Ancient Greek ἀτμός (atmos), meaning 'vapour', and σφαῖρα (sphaira), meaning 'ball' or 'sphere') is a layer or a set of layers of gases surrounding a planet or other material body, that is held in place by the gravity of that body.
From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure that refers to the air pressure at sea level. It is defined as equal to 101325 Pa. Since 1982, it has been replaced by the bar, which is equal to exactly 10 5 Pa.
The atmosphere of Earth is the layer of gases, commonly known as air, retained by Earth's gravity, surrounding the planet Earth and forming its planetary atmosphere.The atmosphere of Earth protects life on Earth by creating pressure allowing for liquid water to exist on the Earth's surface, absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation, warming the surface through heat retention (greenhouse effect ...
Atmosphere (unit) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure defined as 101325 Pa (1.01325 bar). It is sometimes used as a reference or standard pressure.
The atmosphere unit is based on the pressure at Earth's "surface" under certain conditions. Any pressure is also the same as the pressure exerted by some height of water, whether that height is 1 mm or 1 km or anything else.

The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure defined as 101,325 Pa (1,013.25 hPa; 1,013.25 mbar), which is equivalent to 760 mm Hg, 29.9212 inches Hg, or 14.696 psi. The atm unit is roughly equivalent to the mean sea-level atmospheric pressure on Earth, that is, the Earth's atmospheric pressure at sea level is approximately 1 atm.

The bar is a metric unit of pressure, but not part of the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as exactly equal to 100,000 Pa (100 kPa), or slightly less than the current average pressure at sea level (approximately 1.013 bar).
