How is height of a liquid column affected by atmospheric pressure? explain with the help of an activity.

Dear student,
A height of a liquid column will get increased or decreased according to the force of the atmospheric pressure. 


Pressure (P) is inversely proportional to Area (A). So if the area of the column is lesser then Force (F) of the atmospheric pressure is greater. But when the Force is 0, the pressure is 0. 

The atmospheric pressure decides how high or low the liquid is according to the area and force.

Pressure = Force/Area
