This durable, thick, rubber mat is a simple piece of equipment that demonstrates a complex and important concept, that of atmospheric pressure. The mat will firmly attach to most flat surfaces, allowing you to pick up anything from laboratory stools to classroom tables (though those will present more of a challenge), using the included hook. The power of atmospheric pressure arises from the pushing force of air, not from a pulling "suction" force. The mat will demonstrate just how powerful this push can be. You can also explore additional concepts, such as surface area, force, vacuums, and general pressure. An excellent addition to any physic’s instructors classroom, and a fun hands-on activity that students will actually enjoy - can also be used for a variety of science fair experiments. Instructions are included.
