The Standard Atmospheric Pressure

Atmospheric Pressure. Atmospheric pressure is the pressure in the surrounding air at – or “close” to – the surface of the earth. The atmospheric pressure varies with temperature and altitude above sea level. The Standard Atmospheric Pressure approximates to the average pressure at sea-level at the latitude 45° N. The Standard Atmospheric Pressure is defined at sea-level at 273^{o}K (0^{o}C) and is:

101325 Pa

1.01325 bar

14.696 psi

760 mmHg

760 torr
