Air Temperature & Pr essure Air Temperature Air temperature is how hot or cold the air is. Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius (ºC) or degrees Fahrenheit (ºF), using a thermometer. Air Pressure The air in the atmosphere is pulled toward the Earth’s surface by gravity. The weight of the air pushing down on the Earth’s surface is the air (barometric) pressure. aneroid barometer atmospheric pressure vacuum 760 mm (29.92 in.) mercury barometer © Copyright NewPath Learning.
