This Measurement Worksheet is great for practicing reading a Barometer to measure barometric change. You may vary the scales for the problems. The measurement worksheet will produce nine problems per page.
The main use for a barometer is not so much to read pressure, but to measure CHANGES in pressure over time. The Barometer normally has two needles, the measuring hand that displays the current pressure and the movable needle called the setting hand. You normally would align the setting hand directly over the measuring hand and then be able to see how much the measuring hand has moved during the day to indicate an increasing or deceasing pressure reading.
In these problems the setting hand is drawn in dark blue and the measuring hand is drawn in dark red. The student will read the setting hand and the measuring hand pressure.
