    1. Explain why atmospheric pressure always decreases with increasing altitude. Because the higher you get the more room there is between molecules‚ which means less weight from above. Basically the air gets thinner the higher you get‚ so there is less pressure. 2. Why is the decrease of air pressure with increasing altitude more rapid when the air is cold? Cold air is associated with low pressure. So the inherently low-pressure air loses pressure more rapidly as the altitude increases. Air pressure
