What is the approximate mass of a column of air 1 cm2 in area that extends from sea level to the upper atmosphere? What is the weight of this amount of air?

2 The approximate mass of a column of air 1 cm in area that extends from sea level to the upper atmosphere 2 Sea level of the air pressure = 101325 N/m 1 meter = 100 cm 1 m = (100 cm) = 10,000 cm 2 2 2 101325 N/m ÷ 10,000 cm 2 = 10.1325 N/cm = 10 N What is the weight of this amount of air The weight of this amount of air is 10.1 / 9.8 = 1.03 kg
