Heavy Newspaper

Here is an unforgettable demonstration of the power of air! Because the column of air is about 250 miles or 400 km tall, its weight on a sheet of newspaper is enough to hold a stick in place as you smack the other end to break it. Practice this demonstration a few times before showing it to your class. They will appreciate air pressure as a result.
