Due to atmospheric pressure, the air exerts a force of 1.5x105N. This force is equivalent to if we place 15000kg weight on our body. Why we do not get squeeze or get crushed under such a high force?
Air exerts a force of 1.5
We do not get squeezed or crushed under such a high force because our body is able to bear such a heavy weight as body contains tiny pores. The air exerts pressure from inside. Also, there is blood pressure which is exerted from inside.
Both these pressure combine and balance the atmospheric pressure which is exerted, enabling us to tolerate such a huge pressure without getting crushed.
