Question

In which direction does air exerts pressure?
  1. In all directions
  2. Upward direction
  3. Downward direction
  4. Sideways only


Solution

The correct option is A In all directions
Air exerts pressure in all directions. Gases exert pressure on the surface with which they come in contact. The pressure that a gas exerts on a surface is the result of gas particles colliding with the surface. Since the gas particles move randomly in all directions, they exert pressure equally in all the directions.
