"Pressure. When too strong groups are next to each other they can push against each other and nothing really happens but when a strong group pushes against a week group everybody tumbles over? That's pretty much how wind happens. Okay but what is wind made of. And how how does it get to be high or low pressure well. Instead of concert goers wind is made of molecules about seventy eight percent of those molecules are nitrogen and twenty one percent oxygen and then you could trace amounts of other stuff like Carbon Dioxide and water vapor. You've heard that warm air rises right well. Rising air exerts less pressure on the surface of the planet so warm air is low pressure cooler air exerts. More pressure. So it's what creates a high pressure. Area areas of high pressure naturally actually rush into areas of low pressure to balance out those opposing forces and that rushing of air molecules as they battle it out is what creates the wind. You feel as as for whether you feel the same breeze as people at other places on earth well that comes down to global weather patterns which are pretty complicated. It's not as simple as saying that you feel the same breeze someone north of you but if you and another person happened to be located in the same high or low pressure system you'll definitely be feeling the same wind in fact facts. There's a live wind. Map Online created by engineer. Cameron macario that. You can use to see exactly where you're wind is coming from at Earth Dot knoll school dot net that will include a link to that in the show notes. Thanks for your question Peter.
