Air moves from a region of ___ pressure to a region of___ pressure.

Answer:

Air moves from a region of high air pressure to a region of low air pressure.

Air always flows from high-pressure areas to low-pressure areas to reduce pressure difference and reach equilibrium. The rotation of the earth generates a force known as the Coriolis effect which stops the air from moving in straight lines. Rather the wind moves spirally: inwards and upwards in low-pressure systems, downwards and outwards in high-pressure systems.
