We live under constant pressure...not social pressure or financial pressere, but atmospheric pressure!
We use pressure cookers every day.
We travel in pressurized cabins of aircraft. Vehicles use pressurized air to inflate tires, work suspension systems etc.
Food is packaged in vacuum-sealed packets. Soda is bottled under pressure, etc.
We use pressure constantly, but, what is it? Come and find out the science behind pressure and its practical application. Add a new layer of detail to how you see this world.
This workshop will have several experiments and demonstrations to establish the basic concepts and clarify the properties of pressurised gases.
