The fundamental SI unit of pressure is the Pascal (Pa), but it is a small unit so kPa is the most common direct pressure unit for atmospheric pressure.
physics.org page with fascinating facts all about atmospheric pressure. Did you know that you have one tonne of air pressing down on you?
This page from NASA tells you all you need to know about atmospheric pressure. Find out why your ears pop or have a go at flying a hot air balloon.
From the companion website to several recent NOVA programs on Mt. Everest. This page looks at the effects of air pressure at high altitudes.
Various applets allowing results to be taken for demonstration purposes.
A fun toy that lets you build a sledge run and then test it out. You'll need a good feel for the laws of motion to get results!
The boiling point is defined as the temperature at which the saturated vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the surrounding atmospheric pressure.
Kaufmann's experimental results on deflection of electrons in an electromagnetic field favoured Abraham's theory, not Einstein and Lorentz, but were eventually proved wrong.
Ever wondered what it would look like to microwave soap, wax crayons or even fairy lights? This virtual microwave lets you see the results without any of the mess.
