How does air pressure vary from high to low?

I'm somewhat new here, so please forgive my presumption. Isn't the leap from "ideal gas law" to "vapor pressure" rather significant? Given the link you provided, is it wrong of me to point it out?
First, this is a friendly place and it is never wrong of you to point out something that you see as a mistake and second, yes you have a good point. I was mostly trying to get the OP to do some research on his own, which is something we promote here (thus the link that I provided).

Thanks for your post.

What physical condition determines the temperature at which water boils?
