A Spectacular Experiment Exhibiting Atmospheric Pressure
Le Noxaïc, Armand
Physics Teacher, v52 n4 p223-225 Apr 2014
The experiment described here is fairly easy to reproduce and dramatically shows the magnitude of ambient air pressure. Two circular plates of aluminum are applied one against the other. How do you make their separation very difficult? With only the help of an elastic band! You don't have to use a vacuum pump for this experiment.
