Crushing a Can with Air Pressure!

I’m sure that we all feel under a bit of pressure from time to time but did you know that the air around you is constantly exerting a massive 10.1 Newtons of force on every square centimetre of your body?  That’s equivalent to a bag of sugar (in the UK) pressing on every square centimetre of your body, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

So how come we aren’t all squashed flat?

Got an idea for a video?
