          Air is all around us. It puts a lot of pressure upon us. This is called as
           “Atmospheric Pressure”. However we do not feel it.

            (Elements in the body help bring equilibrium so that we do not feel the
            pressure.) The following experiment will provide an idea about the force of air.
