    How does air pressure vary from high to low?

    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?
