Air Pressure And Winds Test: Quiz!

Do you know how the wind moves? Here's the answer. The wind moves because of the air pressure variation from one place to another from the high-pressure region toward low pressure. The wind blows rapidly when the high-pressure area is close to the low-pressure area or if the pressure difference is enormous. This quiz will test your knowledge about the factors leading to the wind and air pressure.
