Problem 20E

Would it be slightly more difficult to draw soda through a straw at sea level or on top of a very high mountain? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

ANSWER: We know that air and other substances move from a high pressure region to a low pressure region. When we suck the soda by a straw, what actually we do is, create pressure difference. By this inside our mouth the pressure is less by evacuating the air and the soda comes from the high pressure regime to the low pressure regime. At the top of a mountain, the atmospheric pressure is already very low and to bring the soda from a low pressure regime to more low pressure regime is tough. So, our mouth has to evacuate more air and by that the pressure could be less than the atmospheric pressure. CONCLUSION: So, it’s tough to suck soda by a straw at the top of a mountain than the sea level.
